Dry Shading

Practically all of the flat and wet-shaded underpainting have been completed.  Now the detail work begins. I'm currently dry shading the clouds and flowers.  The technique is challenging since you not only need to know the dampness of the brush but how much pigment is on it.  The goal being to make small marks that don't have a distinct edge.
