Here's an update photo of my current painting:
The tree on the left is almost in a good place. Maybe a little messing about to get all the parts to sit in the right plane. I've got a little to go on the sidewalk and parking lot below the tree. On the main building I've laid in some texture for the bricks with a palette knife. I'll come back on top of that and put in the mortar lines and start to pick out individual bricks. These brick have got me thinking a lot about Andrew Wyeth and all the great texture he could put down. Texture is one of those parts of my painting that could use some work. I find it especially hard to do in oil vs. a medium like graphite or watercolor.
