A few windows and tiles later.....

As the title suggests, alot of pondering of terracotta tiles, and windows, can't believe I'm barely halfway down the canvas! The warm weather has been very welcome, definitely can notice the oils drying faster.

Now for some details

Started to think about the details today, not sure how much I need. I want to represent the tiles on the terracotta roofs but I don"t want them over laboured. I can see a wonky vertical top left, so will deal with that!

Got the first layer on

Got the first basic layer on, so I can now get a feel for the balance of the painting. Generally happy with the overall feel of this, now I need to start working in the details, starting at the top where the paint has begun to dry.
