Anyway, I've decided to take my Mother's sagely advice and show you all just what a "work in progress" looks like for me. Oh, and in an effort to provide you with a little advance warning, yes I do write notes to myself and no, I am not crazy. (Besides, you know you've done it too.)
Here are a few of the most easily understood sketches in the order of their creation:
So obviously the last two images are of the "yet-to-be-painted" Pirate Ship piece. You'll just have to trust me when I say it is going to be fabulous! Oh, and the "little cloud that could" up in the corner is going to be a lovely shade of white, rather than an imposing gray. He is a wishful little devil isn't he?
OH! I've just realized I've never told you, but if you want to see the images larger, you can just click on them.
