metamorphosis of a painting/unfinished

15 x 20 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper unfinished
Commissions are always challenging;so I thought why not let others see the struggle? In this particular commission the collector liked a painting I did (see December 12 20o7 archive) because of its haunting blue light. So start with that, easy, huh? No. Here is the process so far, from sketch to watercolor to first layer of pastel. I think I will go downtown to the National Gallery to be inspired by some of my friends at this stuck point.
