up from there

As I worked on the animals, I tended to place a silhouette onto the background fabric and then build up from there with shadow and highlight alternatively. After slapping the beige fabric in place I gasped. Mountain goats are white. I had momentarily confused the color with the mountain sheep. I could have removed or covered the beige but I decided to leave it as a warm highlight and I really love how it looks now that the goat is finished.
The fabric for the horns couldn't have been better. it was a wood grain and the lines add such a realistic texture.
