Here is a sequence of my work on the subject today:
Yes, I'm painting it upside down :) so the paint runs the way I want it to, and not down into the space for the buildings.
First I tipped the edges where the buildings are reflecting the rising sun.
After the yellow dried, I painted in the building area. Underneath I had a beautiful layer of tourquoise, but forgot to capture it. You can still see it in part, mainly the rider's head and shoulders. It adds to the glazing over the buildings quite a bit.
The final version, which I'm quite happy with.
My utmost thanks to Ms. Lin for providing such a stunning inspiration to play with.
