After taking a look at the smaller oil study that I did of this subject, I decided on a slightly different composition for this painting. A small drawing in my sketchbook helped solidify things in my mind then I drew the main elements of the scene on an acrylic-primed canvas. I used a thin wash of raw umber for this and although looking a bit messy at this point, I was satisfied that I had accurately transferred my idea from my sketchbook to canvas. Next I'll get some paint on - starting as usual with the background and working my way forward.

The study painting looks great. I really look forward to seeing how this one progresses. You work is very inspirational to me.
