HMMM...Stage 1

I decided I wanted to try being more systematic in my approach, so I actually wrote down the steps I wanted to work through.  In the past, I usually start with an abstract collage background and draw the image on top.  This series I am embarking on starts with a drawing first, then collage, then paint and more drawing.  I decided to use markers for the drawing.  I wanted a grisaille image that would impact the value of the collage papers.  I also plan to do the entire collage in one temperature and then add in the opposite strategically in only 10 or 20% of the image.  Since I work so much in the cool side I decided to make this one a warm dominance.  I got so involved that I forgot to photograph the drawing before I started in with the collage.  This is a full sheet of watercolor 300 lb hot press.
