Yoga pose XVI - step I... doing away with "incisive" cropping!

I have selected a number of full body postures to finalize this series, also making available smaller formats in the process (this one is 24 X 24) ...

I hope to appease the viewer's mind and avoid any ambiguity of interpretation. Ideally, I'd like the style of the previous painting to drag into this one!

I was not sure about the color/value scheme, so I adopted a timid approach to test ground using all primary colors at once especially in the background area...

... and settled for a dark figure with highlights on a medium value background.

I streamlined the figure just to see the effect and will readjust along the way. I've got some work to do!
