After sketching out a number of ideas, I came up with these. This is a variation of the same setup from different angles. I like the 2nd or middle perspective the best.

I spent yesterday stretching my canvas and then transferring my preliminary drawing. Then I painted a thin color wash lay-in to cover the white canvas and established my values. Today I tried to get a likeness of the oldest girl. I had a lot of family interruptions but got some work done.

I hope to get my canvas stretched tomorrow( 25"x35") and my drawing transferred as well and begin laying in the first color washes on this finally.

Wednesday myself, my wife and 6 year old child waited four hours to try and get my kid a flue shot. I got to the Santa Monica College at 7:15 AM to stake out a place in line. We got all the way almost to where the vaccine would be administered, 11:45 AM before we were told there was no more injectable vaccine, the only kind my daughter can have as she is Asthmatic. We were so upset.
What a bummer to hang out all morning with no payoff at the end! Anyway here's a sampling of sketches I made while we waited all morning in line.

I'm beginning to draw my imaginary city in. Its based on Prague architecture with some French and Santa Monica California thrown in for good measure! I also present a little color sketch I created to try and get a feel for the city as well.
