The Lady of the estate making her way toward the Inn...some say her ladyship is rather partial to a drop of gin,and that this is not a courtesy call........Jack.

Here's the latest update...(Thanks for your comment Lee, and I have put some ruts in the road Eighty..)...a bit more detailing...you might not see where,but things are gradually getting done, detailing takes time,sometimes its worth doing, sometimes it just doesnt add to the picture, in which case its a bit of a waste of effort, once I start thinking that way,I might as well pack it up and do something else,but I have got something else going at the same time so I might actually get this one completed( I really should keep more self control anyway,lol ),I didn't finish detailing the last picture I did...Toooooo impatient to be getting on with another, all the time wanting to do that all illusive excellent one that I dream about but never achieve, still, press on regardless,....thanks for looking ....Jack.

Mikejl...Thanks for your reply and comment...Just posting the latest update...I have adjusted a few things including the alignment of the actual Inn itself,which I discovered was on the tilt a little,didn't realise this until I reversed the picture horizontally ( As a check that I do from time to time for this exact reason,an alignment check)...so I straightened it up using the" Picture Transform " option on the layers panel,you can hardly spot the join,lol.....Anyway here it is.....Jack.

Thats it for this picture,I,m posting it as finished even though the foreground is still in its rough state,I just want to post it and get on with something else I started,hope you found it of some interest,I always enjoy painting but my desire to finish,and get on ,overpowers my will to progress it more,so its sort of nearly finished,someone on the rage team said a painting is finished when you stop working on it, and that is just SOOOOOO true.......Here it is,I,m done with it.....Jack.
