Dreaming Of Byzantium - stage 2
I didn't manage to get anything done yesterday as I went to London to enter a couple of paintings in the Discerning Eye exhibition at The Mall Galleries. Using mainly transparent scumbles I have painted in the underpainting to the different areas of the picture which now gives a better idea as to how I intend it to look. I don't want it to be too smooth and defined so I roughly put in shapes of buildings which will form the basis for the architecture - it needs to look huge and complex without being painted too tight. I hope to make a start on the golden sunlight hitting the upper hill while the lower part of the city goes into the morning mist tomorrow.
