Lesson No.10 - Painting in the Chicken's Underbelly
Before putting in some darks under Donna's belly, I added some more different hues e.g. some greens, oranges and yellows. (White reflects colours from the background.) I then went through with the darks to split the feathers up. As you can see, I am now working to make the colours more uniform throughout. I will do this by mixing up our standard purple shadow mix and brushing this through the bird here and there.
