My favorite moment when starting a new painting is after I’ve put some undercoats on the canvas and have roughly sketched out what I want to paint.  I love to look at a painting like this and sometimes find it hard to move on to the next step.  At that moment, there are so many possibilities before the work begins.  Here is a large painting at that perfect point.  (kinda hard to see the sketches though, sorry)  Tomorrow I’ll starting messing it up so I can work it back to a point I like again!

    i always love this moment too :)
    i have such a weird habit of leaving illustrations at this stage and then never getting around to finishing them. sometimes they even end up displayed around my home or studio with pride!
