This was worked in the Stillman & Birn Delta Journal and I remembered to take scans along the way to share how I personally approached it.
I have found that the creative part of me doesn't like to come out and play these days. I have conditioned myself anymore to sketch and paint what I see in front of me. I find it much easier than trying to come up with things from imagination. And it definitely re-enforces my preference for sketching and illustrating versus things like this. All in all I WAS pleased with the results :-)
