Drawing is not "like getting on a bike"

Everything is crooked, light and dark have gotten mixed up - only one reasonable passage. I have been fighting with this. It's HUGE for me (3' x 3') instead of tight little sketches. The paper is really wierd - very spongy and takes an enormously long time to dry. Quite weak in spots - I've already torn it in 3 or 4 places. So I've taken to overpainting hte whole thing to get free and loosend up, and just making a bad situation worse.

Here come the iterations. I never know when to stop, except when it declares itself finished or fully wrecked. I'm finding the "creative process" is really pissing me off.
