Play Nicely

Been making progress, albeit slow, on my newest painting. I've started painting in the first layer of color, getting a feel for how each one is going to get along with the others. At this point I tend to think of the elements - colors, shapes, perspective, composition - as playmates. I experiment at this stage, putting one or more of these guys and girls together, seeing if they will play nicely and not do anything unpleasant to one another. Pulling hair and throwing sand is not allowed.
