I spent most of my time working on the pathway - adding some more colors and textures, shading, and individual rocks.
Overall, I am pretty happy with how it's progressing. (Thank you all, by the way, for your sweet comments - I'm glad you're having fun watching the process...)

Do you agree?
Maybe I should put a sleeping tiger in my tree.
Call me a weirdo, but I never have so much fun as when I'm painting dirt.... or any other element of a mural, really.
After I get the subjects painted in, I will be adding some individual grass blades, flowers, and bugs to dress up the edges of the path, the roots of the trees, and to help "set" my subjects down into the grass. Now that the bulk of the background is pretty much done (except for those final details), I can start working on my subjects and the fun stuff.
I'm particularly happy with how the end of the path area turned out.... I like how it looks like a patch of sunlight is hitting that spot.
If you look closely, you can see the beginnings of a little squirrel... I will be finishing him up today, plus getting started on some of my subjects. So, I'll be back tomorrow with more pictures! Thanks for hanging in with me while I work on this!
And on another note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my husband Josh! Love you!
And to the rest of you, Happy Unbirthday.... ;o)
