So, her’e the rough sketch…and rough it is.  It’s painfully lacking in interesting details, but then, that’s what sketches are for.

In the past, I would jump in full-sized, with no prior sketch, and waste mucho dollars on paper, doing version after version. I now eliminate problems from having done the sketch…and since the paper I use costs upwards of $5 that’s significant.  And less emotionally frustrating, I might add.

So, I’m also hearing the voice of my artist mother as I look at this sketch…..”If you add a couple of details, your picture will tell a story”.

“But, Mom, I don’t want to tell a story!  I want to create a mood and an emotion”.

So, I look a this sketch..it has an Asian artwork feel to it.

I will add details to it, and hopefully create a mood, and tell a story.  Yes, Mom.
