Works in progress
The reference photo for this shows lots of architectural detail along the roof line, and smallish power boats tied up along the edge of the canal. It will be a challenge to give more of an impression of the quirks WITHOUT getting too rigid.
A similar reference of houses/apartments on piers along a canal.
I used a red under-painting to try to keep this farm/barn scene warm.
I have no idea where I'll go with the coloration... but will tone down the reds with some sky-ish and grass-ish colors. I've added some grey blues and greens, ochers with photoshop.
Still wanting to keep the brushwork loose.
