Mewsette catches the bright warm flow of early morning sun trough the back door and into the kitchen. Both she and the shadows are fairly solid black and the light and highlight fairly solid yellow with very little secondary or reflected light.
Since most of the drawing was in shadow I decided in this case to use dark paper and draw the light. My pad of pastello paper didn’t have a good deep brown or green so I used black, which is a little stark but carries the idea well.
