Junkyard dogs 02

Here's some progress images of my painting of the sculpture yard. When I was out sketching out some studies, I found the space to be really oppressive due to the sun. It was quite uncomfortable. I'm hoping to evoke that feeling of needing to squint because of the harsh sun through the bright yellows and dirty greys (I love what grey does to the other colours on the canvas), using bleeds and layering and letting some of the canvas come through.

So far so good. Hit a bit of a wall before doing the washes but thanks to some prof input, I got the ball rolling again :)
