New Body Language Painting - Family Secrets

The sketch

First layout

I just started a new canvas.  It is part of my body language series that explores interpersonal relationships.  This image explores the secrets that every family has.  Some large, some small, but all ignored if possible.  The secrets try to get notice.

As always with me, the layout on the canvas does not exactly match the sketch.  I wanted to use a canvas that was twice as wide as it is tall.  This one is 24 x 48".  

I block it in using acrylics.  They dry quickly and let me make modifications easily.  I think I like how it is laid out.  So I will switch to oils when I continue.
