|This Vuillard was the inspiration|
I got home with the sketch and it's been sitting in my studio for the past month. I went back into it today -- I decided against keeping it and painting on a new canvas -- to see if I could make the sketch into a real painting.
I'm not done yet! As always, I like the looseness of the sketch, but I think I've solved some of the issues in the sketch and will keep working on it.
