Mustang Cafe - stages 1, 2 and 3

Stage 1
Getting back into painting after a few weeks away going to IX in America and and having a bit of a think about things when I got back.
I'm going to put some time into work aimed at the the US gallery market i.e. my Roadside Apocalypse series. I have often liked the tonal underpainting stage of what I do and have decided to work this look up instead of painting colour over it as usual. I will either keep it completely monochrome as it is so far or introduce a tiny amount of colour when it comes to the thicker paint on the buildings. The main thing is to keep it moody! The location is a small town in Texas.
Everything so far is a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and applied with a small flat brush and a rag.

Mehtap sold

Very soon after I got back from IX I sold "Mehtap" via Facebook to a buyer in Colorado. He was incidentally very happy with how I had packed and shipped it! Luckily I had brought it back in my luggage as it was relatively small and was able to send it off before the rest of my boxes came back from the USA.

Piccadilly Circus 6.00 pm sold

Just before going to IX this month I heard from the Abend Gallery in Denver CO that "Piccadilly Circus 6.00 pm" had sold. This was painted a number of years ago in my looser style that I employ for plein air paintings although this one was painted in the studio. 
Oil on board 12" x 12".
