Jungle Adventures

This is a painting I am making for my son. He is infatuated with Elmo. So I decided to paint Elmo swinging above a couple of gators. At this point Elmo has yet to be painted in. I followed some of the teachings passed on by Jack Hamm in his book "Drawing Scenery: Landscapes and Seascapes". Technically speaking the eye will enter from the bottom of the canvas and travel to the branches and then back down again.

This is a close-up of the gators...
