Here is a quick update:
I feel good about the preparatory drawing at this point, the entire process of working larger is really exciting. I owe Marcie Paper a thank you for reminding me that I can paint large, if I decide to, THANK YOU MARCIE! If you don't know her work please check out Marcie's beautiful paintings and animations here. I also wanted to post an image of Euan Uglow's work, a book of his paintings is currently open in my studio.
