The first wash I play with layers of paynes grey, ultramarine and purple, with little touches of ochre here and there. overlaying with a flat brush some bricks are easy to pick out to give the impression of the shiny black mathematical tiles, which Lewes is famous for.Then when I put the first reds and oranges on the colours really contrast, the colours are so exciting together...especially when the paint is still wet and transparent like glass.

|all the base colours are on|
so, that is the end of the easy bit...the definate colours are on. the rest I have to decide on...colours in windows and peoples clothes. It doesn't look much to be painted - but it will take me another couple of days to finish! watch this space...
