Fireflies - stage 1

It's all hands to the pumps at the moment as I get things ready for Illuxcon. The boxed-up paintings went off by FedEx on Friday so that's the major thing dealt with.
"Fireflies" is a small painting that I intend to take over in my luggage as an extra painting to exhibit. It will be a simple composition of a ruined Classical temple by a lake on a moonlit night with fireflies dotted around the foreground, a magical nocturne that will be all about colour and atmosphere. 
This stage was "drawn" in with a thin bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and Lukas Number 5 Medium for a short drying time. I then washed in some tone with a rag and brushes later in the afternoon using the same paint mixture thinned with turpentine and Liquin.
