Interesting project. As I put my collage away at an early stage I discovered I liked it better turned on end so that the dog was flying not lying. Try as I might I just couldn't shake it and although I worked on it as the client sent the photo, he just kept flying! Much to my delight she too liked it better in flight and the work will hang upright.
The drawing only needs to be GOOD
The grisaille BETTER
