I must connfess I haven't rally been following the videos too closely at all so my approach is a bit different,,,,

Basically I am working on 50cm x 40 cm Hardboard which has a sort of ochre-ish/raw sienna ground which I carved up into a grid with 5cm sections and painted in some key lines. Painted in the sky first and mixed up a few greens which I have used to block in and state colour and tonal values. As the image itself is fairly detailes I plan to do it in 3 stages this... (blocking in and plotting) being the first of them...Stage 2 will focus on unifying colours and 3, detailing to tie it all together,,, I kinda like the neutral ground as it's showing through the sky here and there giving it a believable tuscan warmth,,,, hope it works out as planned...

STAGE 2.... (One or two compositional annoyances I'm going to fix but otherwise about where I want it,,, think detailing will make it pop)... Now the fun begins!  :D :D :D :painting:

I have to say I am very impressed by the images others have shared here... think a lot of us have our own takes on the subject which is great! I've got it to this point... time to take a look at the videos now I reckon

Really beautiful paintings here. Surprising how similar this scene is to many areas here in Mexico.
John your painting is coming on famously. Looking forward to seeing its completion.  O0
I am hoping to improve on architectural drawing as there are so many old churches and cathedrals here, not to mention the old haciendas. So many arches and details in the buildings. I think I shall have a look at this lesson and see what I can ascertain from it.
Cheers, Val

Been sitting on this for a few months and now that I have my frame making tools/carpenrty projects etc out of the way decided to try finish it today.... not quite there,, a few small retouches... Think the photo doesn't do it much justice though,,,, think the wet paint here and there threw the focus a bit
