Sketch Placed on Canvas

Spent the better part of the day getting the sketch placed on the linen canvas.  At this phase of my process, I am just looking for a good composition.  Looking for a pleasing design and interesting negative spaces.  I am in no way trying to achieve a likeness or a refined drawing like I did with the Trois Crayon a few days back.  This is intended to be my roadmap.  I have found that when I do a very refined grisaille with an exact likeness, it works against me.  I am then too concerned about ruining what I have done by placing color over it.  Kinda like a deer in the headlights of a car, I just stand there blinking.
