This is a commission whereby the client wants it to be painterly and he wants to see brush strokes, texture, and the hand of the artist. It is getting too wonky and out of control for me. How can I use perspective to straighten things up and keep it painterly and slightly impressionistic. I don't even really know what I am doing or saying... I am losing my mojo for this piece, because it seems like such a mess to me. I am thinking of starting over with a point perspective drawing on paper and transferring it to the panel. He wants the reference photo in total, no cropping or adjusting.

How can I use point perspective to do this? Do I make a sheet of paper the size of the panel and then put points on an undersheet and line up with them there? I feel like the points are WAY out there... Or should I just continue to try to make straight lines without any assistance, which, of course, will make no straight lines at all.
