The nostrils have to appear as an indent. Put a bit of shadow colour under the top curve to push the hole back into the head. The right one is obscured, so just a bit of shadow on the left side to push it behind the nose. The ear is slightly indented as well, so paint in that dirty orangey colour first, then add a bit of shadow colour to the mix and brush it in around the inside curve.

Everything under the frog's head is in shadow. Keeping that in mind, when we mix our colours, add a bit of shadow colour to the mix (Cadmium Red and Ultramarine Blue) to grey off the hue and darken the tone.
Make sure all the areas in your shadows are feathered off and dark enough to lift the head out for that 3D effect.

In this chicken painting project, I'm going to show Jo's work as well. It will demonstrate how you can create your own individual style as you keep painting and practising.
