Moonlit Campo San Barnabas - WIP

Hi Everyone, Firstly TGIF. Its a beautiful sunny day here in Ottawa. I have been working steadily on my new Venice painting and I am progressing well. I have about a good 13 hours of work left and it will be completed. Here is what I have done so far.

Rough Sketch

Drawing on Canvas (sorry a little messy) as I had to resize the bell tower and I changed the position of the moon Blocking in most of the colour.

All the colour is blocked in now and I did a bit detail work. Next I will outline and do all the modeling work, lights and darks, etc. My favourite part of the painting. About 8 hours of work left

Added a some contrasts, shadows a few more lights and I outlined the entire painting with a number 2 brush in Paynes grey.

I actually revised the painting later this afternoon and added more darks to the sky - some ultramarine blue and some pathlo blue. Both images look nice but in real life the first version was too light...Voila the Finished Painting
