"Preludes" - WIP

having finished a week ago my latest painting, “Ports”, been embarking on a project on my bucket list, one which have been on my mind to do since the 70s, but the immensity of the idea was at the time too much for me to spend the needed time with, especially since so many other ideas were in line waiting to get out and painted… this was a large mural like one called “Metatropolis”, and was a visualization of the question - what if FLW had been commissioned to design a cliff city, as, say, per the Grand Canyon… the idea was, to me then, mind boggling, but intended going for it some day, hopefully… well, at long last am giving it a stab - here is my sketch for a smaller sized work to give an idea - “Preludes”, 32"x20", to be pen and acrylic inks…





and here is the beginning of the grisaille -
