Chose a different rock image as my reference trigger. Chose to start with oil pastel lines.
Worked with complementary colors.
Again, loved working intuitively. Loved not trying to make my inner energy match an outer image.
There is more depth in the painting than the photo shows, and less than I might want even so. Perhaps I'll return to this. In fact, hard as it will be to cover up, layer, and/or keep exploring what I've already got going here, I think that is what I have to do. I stopped today because in the moment my painting felt complete, but it is not.
