I'm so proud of my client. She went out of her comfort zone and picked more of an abstract scene. It's in desert canyon colors. The drawing I sent to her was in pencil, so we've made some color changes and we're ready to go.
Here is the first pass. I've painted the arrows in, and will cover them with painter's tape so I can then paint the background over them. Hopefully the paint won't come with the tape when I remove it after the background is complete.
