Charcoal of female mongoose

It was brought to my attention that I have not done any female animals yet so I though I would create my next painting of a female mongoose.  It took a little while finding the right reference and adjusting it to work but so far the charcoals are looking about where I want them to be.  I only have a few more days to finish this one as I am trying to get this into our next art show.  I gelled it up last night so it is ready to paint tomorrow.  I’m thinking about pushing the wall back a bit, darkening the value to push a little more shadow into it when I’m applying the color so that my lady will pop a bit more.  Still not set on a color scheme but lately I’ve been gravitating towards teal for my shadows.  Have to see when I bang away on the color studies.
