29/10: COCKER SPANIEL - a little more progress

Its no fun working on black fur when the light is so poor - even with daylight bulbs I'm struggling today.  

I decided to stop work when I realised I'd mistaken my green umber pastel for burnt umber which led to her nose getting a strange tint for the base layer!  I've corrected it but won't risk anything going wrong today.   

I'll be working on this more at the weekend so will post an update then.  I'm looking forward to getting to grip with those ears!

Good grief, Sue! This dog looks like he's going to jump off the paper!!! You did an amazing job on him and look forward to seeing it finished...Love it!!

Hi Hilda.
Yes, despite being a 'mature' lady, she was quite a livewire and 'interesting' to photograph. I'm having fun with this one.

Those eyes are incredible Sue! Know the light is bad this time of the year but you're still doing a remarkable job on her.

It is so much harder to work in the poor winter light. But she is coming along so well, Sue!!!
