:clap: Thanks for this lovely ref Li, I sure had fun with this one putting on the different layers. It is done with gouache, watercolor, Golden acrylics in Gold, silver and brass and salt. It took 5.5 hrs cause I had to wait for some of the layers to really dry.

WOW Kate!!!! This is so beautifully done. The drawing itself is spot on in rendering and perspective but the finished color version is everything I'd hoped for the reference. The skin tones and esp. the wet pants against the legs is excellent. The metallics give the rocks a nice shimmery wet feel. Your whites really pop with sunlight. Love this!
Wonderful Kate. Love the textures in the background as well as the woman digging.

Oh my! This is so nice! I don't know where to begin. The gloves and arms stood out first to me, then the bucket. You have captured her so well. I am liking this a lot. I am sure I will be back for more looks at this one. Most excellent job!
