Sketch for Predawn Light - Finalized!



Okay, this is it! I can't add much more to it without taking away from the 'integrity' of the image. Working on it this morning, it was a bit disconcerting; I found myself pushing past what was there and what I thought should be. All the while reminding myself it's only a sketch and the painting remains to be done. This can be treacherous ground. Sometimes one starts something with purity of intent and suddenly, the thing itself takes on a personality of it's own. Mind you, this is only part of the final image. And yet, it stands by itself, now. It has become it's own entity.
