Wow Reed: You've done some heavy duty perspective drawing in this.
Exciting shape and color with linear aspects. Going to be a good one, friend.

Thanks, guys! Derek, I tried channeling your levels of patience and detail in all that brick work.

I would also put this in the regular pages below.
You said you channeled me. I did feel a disturbance in "the force". :lol:

Ha! Well, I was definitely thinking of you as I was grinding on those bricks. That's the kind of detail you can't run and hide from, especially working on a larger canvas. You just have to persevere until it looks right.

So, is there a way to easily move an entire thread to another subject area (I assume you were suggesting I post this in Landscapes), or do I have to just start a new thread on that page? I'm kinda illiterate in how to effectively use this platform and you seem to be an expert. Hmmmm, Derek = expert... Notice a trend here?

I think you can just highlight over each page, copy and then paste....highlight, copy, paste etc.

Here's a happy point in every large painting: there is no more blank canvas anywhere! Yes, I still have a few hours of overpainting to do, but dammit, this feels like progress!

Wow...this is terrific! What gorgeous color! And the detail is fascinating. Thanks for showing the progress shots and looking forward to the finale.
