Balancing Act

Work has continued on the Chinese Market painting and I started another piece as well.  The challenge with both is going to be the same.  There is a lot of wonderful paint strokes denoting action within the underpainting that I need to carry into the next stages of the works.  It seems that part of me craves detail and part of me wants to be completely loose and expressionistic capturing just the impression of light and movement.  If I can pull off the mixture of elements juxtaposing them off of each other just right I will be content.
