Now it's done. Deciding to go with my original intention of having a subtle cloud background, I penciled in these hazy clouds today and am comfortable with the completed work. What needs to stand out still stands out and what needs to act as the negative space still acts as the negative space, so time to move on to the next work. This one measures 7" x 23" and will head to the work table later on to float in its frame of 8" x 24".

That works really well. I like the way it just adds a bit of softness to such a strong composition like this.

Love the composition, but kind of liked it better without the clouds. Maybe enhancing the gradiation more from bottom to top could have worked well enough and would have represented soft overhead light and more balance. Just me.
