Vermeer, Rockwell Doodles

Sketching, doodling with a ball point pen on a piece of paper between phone calls. These are pictures I had on my PC wallpaper.

I am troubled that the painting of the Jumping Boys is not going like I had planned. I broke out my value tonal chart last night and I found that the overall value of the painting is WAY too dark! I am basically going to have to cover the entire surface with paint again to bring up these values to match my grayscale photograph. I want to paint it right, so it is something I must do. Oh well, as my friend Lizi said, "all paintings have their own unique challenges."
