Ophelia II

New work-in-progress:
"Ophelia II" Oil on Canvas 36" x 24"

I started this painting yesterday, working many hours to get to this point. I am happy with this first layer, but I didn't think I would be when I started! Mostly, though, at this point I am pleased with the composition. It took me a long time to get this composition just the way I wanted it, and seeing it all blocked in on the canvas now I feel it was worth the time I spent sketching, pondering and rearranging.
