Storm portrait in progress 6

Updated: May 25

This is how Storm's portrait looked when I finished work in the studio for the day.

Just love that pink tongue!

The first bit of pink goes in as I started working on her tongue this morning....











Now I’m layering different pinks, purples, mauves, and red-browns to form the tongue.

Working in the studio with Storm's reference photo on the monitor in front of me.



The upper set of pencils are the ones I've been using for Storm’s coat for the past two weeks - greys, browns, golds, black and white.

The lower set are the colors I’ve pulled out specifically for her tongue. With the swatches I made on the grey paper scrap to guide me.
