Drawing: Compositional Sketches and Layers

I’m working out methods to plan these multiple figure compositions. The multiple layers of Dura-Lar create an interesting and unique challenge: I have to do each drawing individually, but at the same time relate it back to what’s going on in the other layers. One thing I do know is that I won’t be able to work spontaneously in terms of composition. I’ll need to have well considered compositional sketches which lay everything out in advance.

I worked a quick sketch with four sheets of matte Dura-Lar, depicting a group of immersed heads. The heads are a good starting point because of their simplicity. The purpose here is to experiment with how to relate the layers to each other in the process.
