Works in Progress from Sketchbook Studies

After sending off all my paintings to the gallery, I decided to clean and repaint the studio and it is only today that I got some serious painting done.

Working in oils from a an old sketch only - I have no photographs to help and I cannot remember where the scene is apart from possible in Grantown on Spey area in Scotland (along the whisky trail).

I had previously worked the underpainting in crimson, yellow and cerulean blue, establishing the main shapes.  Today, I worked in local colour all over and now it is too wet to do anything else until it dries a little.  I want to establish some more shadows and put in some highlights.

It has been fun to do as the sketch isn't very detailed and this has forced me to work loosely which is what I am aiming to do with my painting.
