Mystery Project - Part Four

This update shows the foreground taking form more clearly than has been the case before. I'm putting in the grass color, which will go back just past the elephant, with a lighter version of that color continuing on the slopes behind him.
He's pink, obviously, and is spraying a rainbow into the little pond. I painted his reflection several times before I got a version I was comfortable with. The foreground cows are completed, as is the flying bee on the right. He's not reading clearly yet, since he's still against a dark background, which will be lightened considerably soon.
Below are a few details illustrating the transtion of tonal values as I paint from dark to light.
