A little progress
After I've done the ho-hum work on the underpainting, these dry-brush layers are my favourite to apply as they bring out a time-worn sense of depth to the images. The wee houses begin to take on personalities and I get a sense of the character of the occupants as they lean upon and support one another. Another layer of colour for the rooftops and some outlining is left to be done before I begin the next cut wood layer to fill the gaping circle. Hopefully I'll get a bit more done and post an image before my upcoming month-long hiatus. Cheers!
