Oh noes! The dreaded white canvas - how to fill it?? ;)

This is wonderfully done. Body posture, the blank white canvas and tilted head all contribute to the story here. Great work!

yes, wonderful. and beautiful story
snoball, I had never thought about this fact of the white canvas, it's brilliant, actually the canvas would no longer be white, so no more fear, and then in coloring or shading you already have some of the values to guide you.
in the last few days I have tried to draw using a colored sheet but without thinking much about why before reading your lines.

Thank you Joe. Yes different colours for different subjects. I don't use panels anymore but I like muted purple for snow and muted reds for summer.
