What Pen and Anna have been waiting for!

This is my inspiration pic:

It is a photo of a red eft by Michael Righi. It's been my favorite newt picture since I started looking for newtly inspiration in July. I've been staring at it off and on for quite a while, trying to figure out how I want to orient and crop it onto a canvas.

I particularly liked how, if I turned it on it's side, some of the marks in the rock reminded me of a ladder. Also really liked how there's some spots (look like water marks) on the fungus that are similar to the newt's spots.

Here's another photo from Michael Righi's photostream:

Here I'm pondering my prints of this again. I want to play up the "ladder" and, Anna will know what I'm talking about here, I'm thinking about Celestial Navigation.

Several layers of tracing paper, so I can manipulate parts of the composition independently.

I'm thinking I really like this one.

Then having second thoughts. Maybe I want a square canvas. I could make a newty sort of mandala...

No. Maybe I'll save that idea for another time.

I've started drawing my composition on a 16" X 20" canvas. Giant newt!
