I feel like I’m really starting to get to know this one now, if that’s not too odd a statement to make. Having worked over the back of the head and making my way down over the shoulders and up the back a bit more, I’m really starting to get a feel for how the fur lies and changes directions, where it opens up to reveal darker under fur and where it lays thickly to look lighter and softer. There is still some refining to do over the areas I’ve worked up, but that’ll happen once it’s all brought to this level: makes it much easier to get the balance right that way. Next task is to work on the upper foreleg before continuing on the back towards the tail. Progressing well I think.
