Yoga pose XI - steps I-II.... Signs of a struggle!

As usual, I never know what to do with backgrounds. After this rough second pass, just as I'm getting ready to throw the towel (I seem to reach this crucial stage with every painting!)...

... the possibility of introducing smoke from burning incense... a common ritual in Yoga classes. I rapidly tested ground in the upper part of the picture. I now need to figure out the smoke patterns around the bend... and everywhere else for that matter!

Lately, I seem to be practicing the art of painting... without painting... getting away with merely 4-5 passes of semi transparent colors. This one is already making me sweat, forcing me to paint for a change!
