So I looked at the original photo and this is closer to the painting.
So the last 2 days have been non painting days. Yesterday, I just had to kick in to the filing as tax year is beckoning and much as I dislike that task, it has to be done! Still needs to be done but half way there.
Today, was a unusal day for us, Scottish dreich weather ( dark, mild and drizzly) and by the time I had arranged the next still life, the life was way too dark. However, I will draw in the structure before I start work at 7 pm tonight (only 2 hrs) and tomorrow I will be ready for the dull weather. Will need to do it in next 2 days as the weather will be the usual winter sunny day on Saturday. The best time for the room I am working in, is about 3 hrs after sunrise as its east facing with only the east wall having windows. So once the sun is high enough above the horizon, the light is pretty steady until about 2 hrs before sunset.
Anyway, time to make dinner. Looking forward to starting the new painting tomorrow.
