It Begins WIth A Rough Sketch!

I finally started the rough sketches in my trusty pad for my powder room wall mural. It is going to be a challenge for sure but a great learning process as well. The tones will be taupe and browns I haven't decided yet if the elephants will pop with color,  I guess I will decide after ground paint is in place. I am also in the process of learning the abstract painting process and I am always looking for inspiration. I love simple interior vignettes, so if anyone has a great vignette they wish to share to be turned into a small painting please contact me at: towncountryinteriors@yahoo.com. I will send you completed painting if I decide to use it for practice!

Very rough sketch to decide characters.
