You've entered Melodyland, where perception is slightly skewed, potential is limitless and imaginary people live happily ever after

Painting under way. Step 1.

Here is the picture I plan to paint, with a sketch of the same thing.  Notice the grid lines running horizontally and vertically across both the picture and the sketch.  These lines help me keep my perspective--whatever is in one square of the picture should end up in the same square of the drawing.

The extra lines on the drawing indicate where I'll have a drastic color change for the horse's blaze, his nose, his lips (contrast).  So when I get into the flurry of painting I won't forget where those lines should be.
