melo & arya

9x12
In the reference photo you can't see many details because of the strong backlighting, so I set out to try to see the shapes of the midtone and dark values and paint only those.
I have a number of photos of my cats with strong value contrast that I think could produce good paintings.
Have to work on those transitions a bit ... and learn to not go back into a wet wash. Duh.
