Assignment 1 - progress

Making some progress on my painting. Tonight I'm going to work on the beams of the sculpture and exaggerate the foreshortening to add depth to the picture. Not entirely convinced by the strokes in the foreground. Might go over it with a large smudge of warm yellow. Also have to work on the tone of the bricks on the walls of the building in the background. They need to have some blue in them so that they recede a little more. Then I'll add the brick line using 2 point perspective.
We'll see if my colours are getting too fussy because I'm reading 5 colours, only I wasn't expecting the sculpture to be different from the cement path . . . might have to change that.
