Have started to sketch out compositions on five boards of different sizes. As well as elephants I'm trying an egret, kingfisher and helmeted guinea fowl. Molly (cat) is having a paddy and attacking carpet in hall, better see what she wants. Not sure if it's food (she's very fond of eating) or wanting to go out so have given her both options so that I can quickly get on with this and do some more artwork. Found the drawing out quite hard yesterday as I'm out of practice. Think I need to try and get back to doing a drawing everyday to get my eye in again. Although I think it's also my impatience to get onto the next stages of putting the texture on then playing around with colour. Later today going to try and sort them out but in the meantime I've got cards to do. Making some for mam too so need to get going.
