I decided to go with the sand in the underpainting again, as I did with The Return. I have included some detail photographs so you can see the effect close-up. Last time I just used the heavier sand in a few spots on the positive side of the building, whereas this time I also use some “craft” sand, which is very fine, over the entire structure. I hope this texture will bring out more depth.
I put a bit more color into the underpainting in the building and will start out with white glazes to see how it looks with the underpainting barely showing through. Most likely I will than add areas of solid color to block out some of the areas of color. If I don’t like the effect then I will just paint in the color as I did with The Return.
