I started right back into painting after the big hullabaloo ... (The opening reception for my first solo painting exhibit! SO FUN!)
I have been wanting to do this painting for quite a while.
These two sketches are when I was in the first stages of planning the painting. They are just in my little 9 x 6 inch sketchbook, one above the other.
This one was how I kind of imagined the painting to go initially.
And this is how I finally decided placement should be.
I think the person who I am painting will probably guess - but we will see...
