An update on my Fox’s Wedding (working title). The first layer of foliage is complete — there will be at least two more layers, which will hopefully take place tomorrow. The first layer always takes the longest for me — not that it’s any more labour-intensive than the subsequent layers, but it’s the stage that’s filled with the most doubt (is this the right colour? Do I really want that much blue?). For the most part, I’m pleased — the final product will be much darker, and many of these colours you see now will only be hinted at in the end. But right now, I’m happy with the fact that it looks like a container of Smarties exploded all over it.
