The Gilded Prison - stages 2 and 3

On today's morning session I roughly painted in with a brush and rag a tonal underpainting using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Manganese Violet thinned with Liquin, Lukas Number 5 medium and turpentine. As this had dried for the afternoon session I was able to put down a colour tonal underpainting. I am basing the whole picture around a Red Violet with the complementary Yellow in the sky and variations of Green and Violet mixes for the rest, the area near the horizon will veer slightly to Blue. I want a dramatic sky with the domes of the Taj Mahal catching the sunlight and want to keep the painting warm not cold as this is India and it's pretty hot most of the year!
