I 've spent quite a bit of time working on this drawing. The painting is 16 x 20 and the composition is pretty complicated. I find that the more time I spend on the drawing the less I have to fudge around while I'm painting. Some artists prefer to find the edges as they paint and I totally get that, but for me it's those little almost unnoticeable nuances that give beauty and life to a painting and I'll never get them with the blunter point of a paintbrush.
