Cut Paper - 7 x 7 inches

Carol Marine post quite a photo for this week's Daily Paintworks "Crazy Making Challenge." (to see her source photo, follow the link).

Before getting into the paint, I took her advice and did a few quick sketches and then a detailed one the size I wanted to paint. The final sketch looked so much like stencil art to me that I decided not to paint the scene at all, and just construct it with paper. The blue sky is from a photo detail of another painting.

If I have time this week, I'll do a painting as well. We'll see.
