Hmm. I thought once I painted in the first columns, the rest would go quickly. The colors are mixed so it is just painting them on. Trouble is I keep getting lost from the palette to the painting. My line drawing is down and like usual I add no shading at that stage. That means I have these wonderful guide lines but don't readily see as I am working if the line represents background, column shading, or column hightlighting. I have to keep referring to my reference photos then back to the painting.
One little distraction and once again I forget where I was.
