Marbles - Work in progress

Adding layers with colour, but I'm still using the underpainting. Haven't added the real colours yet.
Now I'm starting to layer on the finishing colours. I have 3 different "reds on the red marbles. Likewise with the green. The shadowing is harder than I realized.

I cheated and painted the white reflections. Seemed like the easiest way to go about it. The hardest part was keeping the stupid things round!!!! Almost impossible if you ask me. Is a marble really perfectly round anyway? Did all the burnishing and buffing I'm going to do today. I'll see tomorrow if I want to do more on this. I probably should, but I have a feeling I will call it finished.

You are so right about the round shapes, those are very difficult to keep round. Your color choices are great. Nice work.
