delving for the moment into color, this shows - with several more layers, of course, yet to go - what the leaves will look like...............

Working on the right half of the Castle now. Stone work and adding color.
The detail in this piece, is making the work go slow but I am enjoying it.
Still deciding on what color to make the roof tiles. Normally I am a lot more decisive on these kind of decisions. But it is really hard to make out their color with Darling Husband's photographs.
This is Kumamoto Castle in Kyushu, Japan.
The photos my Husband took, were in winter and there was a big tree right in front of the main part of the castle.
I decided not to paint the tree, as it distracted from the beautiful castle.

Spent a bit of time today, adding a lot of shading to the body of the Castle. Bit hard to see in the photo.
Also worked on the next section of the castle.
Need to start working on the roof tiles, but not sure of the color?
DH's photo's he took of the Castle in Japan, are very old and hard to see what color they were at the time.
Will have to do some research, or do a color story board, to see what would look best.

Ever so slowly moving along with the Japanese Castle. Inked the stairs in and worked on the extension of the Castle.
Is going to quite a bit of work to hand color each piece of Stone, but worth it.
Still have the last part of the Castle to do. Once that is done, will finish up the sky.
