Tuba Commission, Part Three

Here is the picture I promised earlier.  My earliest steps, typical with a commission, were to take lots of photos and narrow down the choices, presenting them to the clients.  Once that's decided, we discuss color, size, etc.  They wanted Mexican colors with lime green, or chartreuse.  

With all that laid out, I did a small sketch, laying in colors, so they could get an idea of what the finished product would look like.  Here's my little sketch, done with crayon, watercolor, gauche and whatever I could find.  Later in the game I could go buy the right paints.
