Squaring Up, Prep 2. Colour study and squared up painting start

As usual the colour sketch has the edge. The accurately squared up painting is mechanical at the start. Not sure if I can work well this way. However, painting is 3 hours old so far.

Next steps: trying to take on board the tutor notes to
* widen use of colour away from pastel
* build depth
* be alert to complexity of detail in the wrong places in the composition

  1. Tis painting went from bad to worse. Abandoned it as the shapes just did not work. Tried again weeks later and lo and behold, it worked so much better. I really though about the shapes, relations and could proportions whilst trying to capture the place! At last. Time does heal!
