There is much more I need to do on this still. As it is quite large, I am working from top to bottom rather than all over like I usually do and I still have much of the foreground to put in. Once it has dried enough I shall work all over it again, refining it further.
On Saturday, I was unable to work on it once I had got some colour in, so I began my next painting, here it is just sketched in with a burnt sienna wash:
As I don't like to use solvents or any other quick drying medium, just linseed if I need the paint to spread easier, drying time is a bit longer, so something else to work on may help my productivity.
Having said that, I feel that having a larger piece may mean that I can work on different areas while the other dries.
