2:57 PM: the drawing progressed further. i haven't yet put brush or oil to canvas, and am engrossed at the developing patterns of blues, pinks, and greens emerging from the grey/blue/tan rocks. as long as i'm having fun with the process, the under-drawing will continue using just colored pencils and, occasionally, crayons.
i'm beginning to consider making smaller square canvasses, maybe 6 at first, that are made as one composition. then the buyer can hang them as they were painted, or move them to different positions as they wish. they could then be moved about whenever and in whatever order and however frequently they might desire. personally, i would love that because, lets face it, i get tired of looking at the same composition every day.
