Pete and Repeat
Tracing paper is one of the great inventions. It lets you make incremental improvements in a composition while hanging on to the thing or things you've done right in the previous drafts. I used to dream of being one of those people who could just lay down a beautiful drawing in one easy, fluid effort. That gift was given to others. The best I can hope for is that, through sustained effort and the benefits of tracing paper, I can get something I don't hate -- or even sort of like.
So I'm somewhere in the middle of this composition. There will be more.
