Goathland Interim

Goathland Interim

I have made a start as you can see

There was rather a lot of woodland. Usually the background is pale, sky, perhaps a few distant trees, and that makes a clear backdrop for the foreground to stand out against

This time we have trees and lots of them, and so the foreground has to stand out against this darker background. For the moment, I have just started to detail some of the buildings, and for me there is insufficient definition. They need to come forward otherwise they will just go back into the trees

Looking back at the reference photograph, there is a tremendous amount of red in the picture. The ironwork is red. The trucks are red. Paintwork is red. The brickwork could do with a coat of something, as it appears anemic . I think a coat of Permanent Rose or Light Red would help, and that is probably what I will do

The buildings and rolling stock should when completed come towards the viewer and throw the trees back, which I think might prove a relief to the eyes

I haven’t had time to work on it today so will try tomorrow to get something moving

Until then
