Giraffe work in progress, day 2

Day 2
I've started to to pick out the form of the giraffe, and play with some background colours. I like to work on the drawing as a whole, so I can get to feel the balance of tones and often work a colour through a drawing to achieve a balance.

I decided to spray the drawing with fixative after this stage, hoping it would fix this layer of pastel.

More texture, and form, the fixative has definitely helped me to layer more pastel on, more tinkering with background colour, I'm still having fun experimenting. I have added in contrasting colours to pick out different areas of the giraffe, rather than using white.
