Here's a close up of the salamander. I want him and the goblins detailed, but not super detailed. They're sidekicks, they're not the star of the painting.
We used to catch these little guys in the old farm pond in Bosky Dells near where I grew up. It was a lovely and haunted seeming place that could only be reached through the door in the basement. Old Farmer Stump would run us off if he caught us there, but there were far too many temptations to keep a young boy from coming back. Wonderful childhood memories.
