I've been having no end of trouble with this. I normally suss out a composition before starting something and then lock it in early in the painting process. This one was different. The cardplayer figures were originally sitting in chairs, and the Te Kooti figure was a guy in a bunny suit holding up a sign. Now I'm considering replacing Te Kooti with more glyphs. Changing the figures around meant they went out of scale. I thought that didn't matter because they were separate elements, but now it's bugging me. I'm just going to put it to one side for the meantime though and get on to the next thing. I actually think it worked better as a drawing than a painting.
