    Looks very promising! Im looking forward to the next stages!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    No shying away from detail for you. Enjoy. Could be great for a portfolio.

    It'll definitely be a challenge!

    I'm not going as detailed as a Canaletto, but hope to imply that level of detail to get that kind of feel...

    Still "umming and ahhing" over what sort of palette to give this one though. I have a shortlist of three... It'd be great to do the same scene with all of them as an exercise, but I won't have time for that! then again that'd be a great set for the portfolio...

    Very impressive, I like where you are going with this idea...
    But I hope you don't forgo the lively quality you got in the line work of those sketches, that line has a lively effect, its a very cool narrative to your project I would say - it reminds me of the way Delacriox could do that, use speedy sketch lines as a way of describing so much detail but never boring the viewer for a moment. someone else was J.S.Sargent. His watercolors of Venice make the likes of dear Canaletto a bit of a yawn. I scanned in part of Sargent's watercolor (scanner too small to include the whole thing), and you can see how his use of line is a narrative about so very much thats going on in the picture.

    Looking forward to seeing your next results

    That sargent piece is gorgeous! I definately aim to get that sense of romantic decay in evidence... I ve lost some of the "London" ness and it's not clear as it is how the original aim will manifest itself as it stands... I still have high hope though as it's early days yet....

    here's an update.

    I feel I should point out that the contrast is a bit whacked because i plan to paint thin washes if mist to get a real sense of "moisture in the air" that is tangible..

    the left hand side is sketched in now... I'll move on to the right side now then the figures....

    I've added a bit of mist already.
