20 Zone - Early Stages

Here are some pictures of my latest painting. They say you should never show a work in progress but here is the work in the first couple of stages anyway!

I started out by photographing the Quayside area of Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. My chosen image shows the bridge just out of view with the foreground dominated by an electric bus and a 20 mile per hour speed zone sign. These types of arbitrary elements can, I think, give a greater feeling of realism to an image.

I'll post some more photos and also a video as the painting progresses.
