screwed up a bit as main subject of the rule of 3rds for intended idea so a rethink and dramatic sky to compensate is underway

Looks good generally - watch for that bottom of the cloud bank and the top of your airframe though. If you drop it below the top of the fuselage it will really make the plane pop.

The A/C looks to be coming on well, but the whole thing seems very top heavy, infact I get the impression that the sky is about to squeeze every thing else out of the bottom of the picture.

there's a clue why it shouldn't in already jim but yeah get what you're saying with how dark it is but it will lighten in the following layers ,, plus there are going to be darks at the bottom also

Precisely why I seldom comment until a painting is finished. But you can only go by what is in front of you.

thinking of calling the sky about done completing all of the background soft and muted to give depth with bolder colours and sharper detail in the foreground

Came out much better than I thought it would. I still think it a bit top heavy though. The reflections under the tug are excellent.

cheers jim ,, still bits and bobs to do but gradually saving it to a degree , if nothing else it serves to teach me to take care during lay out stage

some further progress and not far from the finishing line now ,,, the bottom cloud line has been dropped to give the top of the fuselage its definition as per d'arcys suggestion .. only tiny bits and glazes remain to take it to a finish

getting nearer the end ,, I always judge that by how happy I am x by how little left to do
