The Process of Painting

I thought I would share a bit of my painting process. I never take enough photos, because I get involved in painting and all of a sudden a dramatic change occurs. Here is a look at a recent painting. It is on an 11x30" wooden panel.
Ink drawing on textured surface

Adding some definition - black and white

Neutralized the background - the flower was distracting!
Added more detail to the figure.
The flower and edge of the collage suggest "ears."

Ears appear and color is started.

This is where I got lost in the painting and stopped takeing pics.
 Added more color and ink drips to the background.


Close up of the face. 
Wishing you inspiration!
