We met yesterday afternoon at Benny's Landing. Beautiful afternoon.
Right off the bat, I messed up the line of houses: it's too big, and the rooflines were mostly at the same height. Also, I began by painting the shadowed side of the houses; should have started with the lighter side, I think--then I might have seen the drawing error and been able to fix it.
Since I wasn't happy with it, I decided to mark corrections on it with a marker, so I could try the scene again.
I changed the roofline, and added more dark shapes along the base of the houses.
When I paint it again, I'll much reduce the prominence of the houses too.
