A little less nuclear and a bit more thinking

I'd like to take these life studies up a notch but am not sure which way to go.  I've been concentrating on contrasts lately, warms v cools, large blended areas v high chroma drawing lines and generally trying to add variety with the mark making.  But directly opposing that is the other goal of trying to keep it simple. I've never spent too much time on backgrounds given the time limitations but I find myself wanting a clean and simple solution to try ground the figure and make it a bit more of a composed piece.  So much about art is the thinking...
