First Encounter WIP

First Encounter is the working title for this painting. I have completed my 'road map' by laying in a few layers of darks and indicating the lights. The lighting was dramatic and I hope to capture that in the painting. Next I will continue building layers of color all over the painting. It's funny though because even as it is at this early stage, it is very much Tobi & Maya. I don't want to lose that so I will proceed carefully. This is 18x24 on LaCarte paper.
