Note to self, either take more tea...or pace myself and not have 3 cups in the first 10mins of painting. And yes, I can drink tea and paint at the same time.
So this is how things were going after just over an hour working on it,
From here I added the detail of the road markings, and then adjusted them, adjusted them again...and again until I got them to a place I was happy with them. I also didn't want to make them stand out too much, although coming in to the foreground I don't want them to catch the eye too much as all of the attention should eventually (when it is finished) got to the viaduct. The markings should act as a device to keep leading your eye back into the work.
So, unfotunately I couldn't get started on the viaduct (so it remains glaringly white!). However, I will get back to the studio at the weekend, armed with a lot more tea and see if I can get it finished. I wouldn't be able to carry on with it for a few days anyway as I need the paint to completely dry before I begin work on the viaduct as I have something speacial planned for it..............
