A Cloudy Morning

Now that I have a good idea of the general layout of the background I wanted I searched the internet for reference photos that would help me flesh out my ideas.  I found a few that offered help on colors and I have to say that it was great fun roughing in the sky and icy tundra.  The colors are subdued but very appealing to me.    Fortunately the Girault pastels that I have include beautiful selections of grayish blues and a few purples that worked well. 
For the dogs, I just continued working the fur, adding more color using as varied a selection of colors that I could within the fairly narrow range of the dogs’ coloring, being careful to keep the overall cool feel.
