Corner Shop Revisited continued...




The lower image shows the blocking in of the trees, and completing the walls on the sunlit part of the building.

After a little more work, in the top image, the street lamp is more defined, details in the windows are added, and the shadows in the trees are darkened. The shadow area of the front of the building isn't really as light as it appears (bad photography) but I did lighten the sunlit part of the awnings.

I think I might let this rest here before adding anything else. I think the big roof area needs to be lightened a bit and maybe a bit more detail in the lamp and edge where the sidewalk meets the building (there's lots of weeds and things in the photo).

I think I will work on it some more just to see where it goes. I'm kinda liking the rough version with the very dark tree shapes and lots of the orange underpainting showing. We'll see.

Great job Big G! I think this is going to be one of my favs of your work so far. I like the little dollops of paint suggesting posters on the side windows.

Thanks. Well see in the next few days if I can ruin it.
