Shopper revival

New look shoppers
These are reproductions of a gouache draft to examine ways to develop an old painting. These upgrades are not straightforward because the past clings so much. To begin with I did a number of drawings but they hung  tightly to the old scheme, and in order to break the logjam, I pulled gouache out and an old piece of paper and after a number of reworked attempts found this image that marked a step in the right direction

This is a step, A piece of  primed ply is waiting for my next opportunity to work on it. below is the early painting that is the source idea. It dates back to about 1989.
