Time for a lesson: "xnipek" (pronounced SHNEE-peck) is like Yucatecan pico de gallo made with habanero chiles. It also means "the dog's nose" in Maya, a reference to the runny nose you may experience from eating the spicy salsa.
It's a key part of our Yucatecan Summer Torta, made with Gunthorp Farms pork carnitas, romaine lettuce, habanero crema and, you guessed it, a nice dose of xnipek. #maya#dogsnose#Yucatán#tortally#xocolove
Back in my studio 😍 I always sketch in detail in the nose and them build up the detail - noses can be challenging, it's important to get the angles and perspective right but so much can change when shadows and highlights are added - my mantra is keep layering! #animalartwork#staffie#dogsnose#staffielife
