But I don't want to publish the actual painting till its finally complete. So here is a small preview in the guise of my charcoal preliminary, color studies, charcoal transfer to canvas and monochrome under painting.
Its tentatively titled "Problem Solved".
I'll post the completed picture in a day or so, as soon as I'm happy with it.
