Working more on the Autumn Leaves and Berries painting - stage 4 and 5 were mostly working with the bg, laying down a warm wash and then pushing the background back even further with Indanthrone Blue (by Daniel Smith) and leaving some leaf shapes here and there. I'm pleased with it so far and it needs about 2 more workings before it's done. And that means working the leaves to give them all more dimension (so taking off the misket is next!).

Worked more on the elephant on masa paper - this is done because the masa paper won't take more working. But I'm learning about the paper and what you can and can't do with it and what works best :) I'm not thrilled with this but next one will be better...
