These is an exploration of a photo that I thought would make an interesting painting. I worked through the stages in my sketchbook with thumbnail sketches (small sketches for shape placement and value) and then continued on in my sketchbook with a very rough oil painting. The end result was it was a nice photograph, but just wouldn't work up to a painting I would be excited to paint. Always great to have this work in a sketchbook as I may change my mind or come up with a different plan at another time. The top left is the photograph and a couple are black and white photos that I took to check my values.
