So I started ruffing out color thumb for a painting that's lined up in the cue.
I started out by taking bits of scrap (internet clippings) and slapping them down, arranging them until I found a composition I liked. Then as I let my sub-conscience roam and muse over the images a picture started to emerge. I should have saved some of the images along the process to see where I started and where I ended up before the conscience started to dominate and compose according to experience.
Next time I'll have to make a concerted effort to save off versions as I am process.
For now here's where I need to stop and move onto another assignment for the time being.
