I love your process and style, seems very straightforward. Everything is where it should be with lines and shapes easy to follow and recognize. I have seen A LOT of great paintings ruined by being too busy.
Where I work for a retail store they let me do the art around the place and I get a lot of freedom to draw what I want, more or less. But they still sometimes throw things out at me, I worked on a 4' by 5' board for about a month designing, drafting and redesigning. Right before it was about to be painted they decided to toss the idea, now, a week later, they want it again but smaller and in a different place!
