Bananas - Step 1 - Drawing/Sketch

So I'm working on a painting of bananas at the moment. I thought it would be fun to show the painting process and the various steps to its completion.

This is the drawing phase. Just a light pencil rough of the bananas scattered about.

I like the composition of the bananas here. Originally, I intended to have them all neatly lined up. Boring. This is much more interesting to the eyes in my opinion.

My plan is to bombard this piece with really bold colors. Think yellows, reds, and blues.

To start things off right, I listened to the B-52's while drawing this. The funky, high-energy melodies matched what I'm trying to capture in this latest painting.
