I created this composition first by arranging different parts of each sketch. It began with the portrait and the frog eggs suggesting a conversation. The table was added for balance and as a foundation for the floating eggs.
Below shows the color shapes behind the line work. Most of the line work color was changed to a dark brown; the frog eggs were made white except for the eggs to the lower right.
This dash texture was placed on top of the color shapes; color was added to the dash line work to match each background color area.
