Working Through Painters Block

I started this piece sketching on it freehand ... and after working on it off and on ...I got so frustrated I'd planned on sanding down the entire piece and starting again. I sometimes think I rush my vision, if that makes sense. I know the traditional way is to paint the background first - but I never seem to do that ... and I'm wondering if that is what is getting me into trouble.

I worked through some of the issues on this piece - its not finished, its still a work in progress. What I learned this weekend was to not force anything..that when I get to the point of frustration - I need to walk away.
