Trying something new this time as well, besides a picture reference I have the cat enlarged on my computer and it really shows the colors quite well, so am hoping that will help.
Have a lot of colors in here, especially in the dark part of his back, not sure about it, but am going to continue and not worry about it. You can see I have the side whiskers blocked in although there is still quite a bit of work to be done there, but it is much lighter coloration than the regular coat and looking at this I hope I have oranged it too much.
Think I am getting a better handle on the layers and the Prismacolors and have learned that yes, it's ok to scratch off and start again.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great painting week.
