Possibly finished; will sleep on it and decide tomorrow.  Need to think of a title as well…

I’m wondering if I should be calling this ‘untitled work in VERY slow progress’…

A bit of progress from last night, most of the darkest darks roughly in place.  Enjoying this one so far, it’s nice to work big!

Had a go at another plein air piece today, but rain stopped play (this is Belgium after all).  So thought I would post the block-in I did the other evening.  This is of a marketplace in Pisa, from a photo taken there last year.  I found the perspective quite challenging, especially of those vaulted ceiling arches.  Still not sure if I’ve quite got it right.

Just back from the annual trip to Tuscany.  Got a few rather mediocre paintings done.  Still have some more time off work so will be trying to get a few more under my belt, and hopefully pull the standards up a bit!

Might be turning a corner with this one.  Not quite so disappointed with it as I was last weekend anyway!

Gah.  Time to put this one on the shelf for a while and try something different I think.

Not much further ahead with this.  Don’t think it looks like me – I hope not anyway!
