Usually I am a one work at a time kinda guy. I try not to plan too far ahead, because I've discovered that if I sketch out an idea, and I can't start painting it right away I lose interests, especially if I do a painting or two in between. However, when life gives you lemons (in the form of the flu) you gotta make lemonade (or hot tea with lemon). Since I haven't been up to working with dusty pastels, I've worked on multiple outlines instead.
Here are snippets of two. Will both become full fledged paintings...time will tell.
