The progression of a piece

This painting has been a thorn in my side for the past month. Unsure of where it wants to go, it has undergone various different stages.



Promising start. Watercolor blocked in by acrylic  


Still holding together, acrylic slowly enveloping the watercolor


The introduction of oil. No turning back now, unfortunately  


Oil has hooded our characters. Thought this was a good idea at the time


Current stage. Getting away from the hoods. Instead I opted for a blizzard of paint. 

I have two more sessions with this piece before I consider it DOA.
