 For the first time, I was sad to wash off an old painting because the majority of this painting "worked". It is my eleventh rework of 2012; my quest to rid  the studio of mediocre work. Sitting atop the old painting is the little color study for the new painting.
 This is the ghost of the original painting on Wallis paper, after the hose-off. The black lines are the charcoal sketch for the new painting.
 The oil palette for the new underpainting.
The oil-wash underpainting is complete and is drying overnight, awaiting pastel.
