Got to work on my snail today. If planned to do this part in oil, but somehow ended up just glazing pencil instead. I still figured out a specific look for Petunia…

Working on some leaves today. Oil paint thinned out to nearly a water consistency to achieve some a near watercolor effect.

Undercoat almost done. This will hopefully have a photographic look with the background leaves and twigs looking more fuzzy and out of focus.

Got the basic outlines down in burnt umber colored pencil. I’m leaving Petunia blank until I get her hair and outfit right. I’ll start putting down a transparent under paint layer of burnt umber oil paint tomorrow. When that dries, I’ll start layering some subtle colors.
