All Paintings have their birth somewhere. Here is a typical preliminary sketch, perhaps dealing with composition or just an idea for a painting. This sketch was found in one of Dick’s books of how to draw heads. I have matched it up with a finished painting in Dick’s more mature stage. They both deal with an inward center perspective with the main activity based in the center foreground.
