acrylic on paper, thumbnail for oil painting.

advantage of doing thumbnails (for me) is that I get an idea of the final look,
but still can correct bad drawing / proportions
before it uses up expensive paints.

I like the concept of this one, but it needs corrections
does not have the visual fluidity I imagined

C&C always welcome

Interresting process. I really appreciate seeing your steps. In the final thumbnail, I think the light blue is a problem...it doesn't give the depth that the image and your sketch has.

Thanx Carl, I felt the blue and the reds clashed rather than excite the eye. It was an experiment, back the the drawing board.

Thanx AB, but it really was not my best line drawing, many innaccuracies
