Le Vainqueur

Stage 2

A very quick wash over the charcoal sketch, just to get a sense of placement and diagonal. The elk has become smaller, but I want the background to encroach on him at this stage, so there is no possibilty of him looking floating or stuck on! The animal has to be integrated into it's environment and I personally think the best way of doing this is paint whatever colours are in the background into your focus point - here, the Elk and lesser so, the rocks to the foreground.
