Italian street scene for Brian.

Tonal sketch

It's not quite turned out Brian but it will give you an idea of what I'm on about. I've split it into 3 sections, the tower (lightest), the middle and the foreground, all getting progressively darker in tone. The photo hasn't shown it as well as I had hoped but you get the idea. The buildings on the left side of the street are in sunshine, so keep it very light. The contrasts between light and shade create impact and therefore will add interest. Good luck!

Thanks again, Alan, for the more than generous help. Yes, I can see what you mean and I must say I'm impressed by your speed sketching. I'll go ahead with the painting tomorrow, all things being equal. So fingers crossed. Best Brian
