Looking for Feedback

During the past year, there have been a few requests for drawings and small-scale paintings that maintain the look and feel of my larger works. I would periodically brainstorm, experiment and sketch, but enjoyed little success making the transition from large-scale painting to small-scale drawing. For guidance, I even summoned the spirit of the great Bob Ross, but alas, the “happy little trees” remained absent from my forest.

Anyway, I have recently been experimenting with some new ideas, and was able to find an approach that works as both a painting and drawing. The image below is the first tentatively finished drawing.

Your positive / negative feedback is requested. I’m trying to determine if the drawing is resolved and interesting, or just the best of the failures. The framing (and matting) still needs to be finalized. Overall size (including frame) is 17.5 x 10.5 inches.
