This is my favorite! I felt like I was starting to catch on and make some sense of what I'm doing. And I really like the tight composition. My purpose in that close framing was just to keep the painting manageable - it's only five inches square - but I like the composition for itself.
I'm not showing steps now, because I've moved on to oil, and the block-in wouldn't be dry enough for me to scan. But it's the same steps. I'm sketching with acrylic paint - magenta - so I don't have to wait for that part to dry.
