My experiments with the basic geometric shapes is turning out to be okay. I think an underlay of the shadow's color is a great technique that saves a lot of time and effort into building a vision. I think I will experiment more tomorrow with this technique to see how far I can develop it into an effortless habit of beginning a painting. So far I have the steps:

  1. Geometric shape sketch
  2. Sky color
  3. Shadow color
  4. Geometry rendering
  5. Geometry design
  6. Background lit color
  7. Highlights

It's a bit wordy, but I think it can be much easier. Just need to continue to refine this style. Never stuck on old achievements. Always start something new.
