Design Evolution

The evolution of a design or a piece of art works differently for every artist. 
More often than not this is how it works for me.

Warm up exercises in a small sketchbook and loose pieces of paper which I will later put in my larger sketchbooks.

 Old and new sketches laid out on my desk. I always go to my history, the archives of the sketchbook stash to pull inspiration. What I didn't use before may be relevent now. 
I painted small scraps of paper for color play. All pieces go on a temporary inspiration board. 
I am forever moving and taping and moving and taping. 
Then the light bulb goes off and voilà. 
How do you begin your masterpiece? 
What does your desk look like?

Layout I like and then the color play!
