Rylie and all those curls!

While it rained and thundered and hailed.....yes, hailed.....I was working away on sweet Rylie and all those lovely curls......
She is coming along nicely I think!  I had such fun swirling around in that "mop" that sits atop that sweet little face and of course it will eventually cascade down on either side.  I spent some time on the nose and muzzle area....blocking in some color.  Animal noses can be tricky....getting that texture and the play between dark and light.  Rylie's nose is a little different in that due to the angle the photo was taken, there is a bright reflection on the bottom side of each nostril opening....not something you usually see....but that is just another chance to learn and grow as an artist.
