It was a longer than usual day, but I really wanted to finish. Rover's eyes are dark and that pushed me to darken other elements in the drawing as well--Marylou's dress, the goat's face, and some of the shadows in the cart and the bull. I think it adds to the slightly claustraphobic feel of the drawing. When I pinned it up for a review, I realized that the composition is inspired by Maurice Sendak. The figures are over-sized and crowd the edges of the page.
