Layers

Work continues.  Right now I'm applying lots of semi-transparent and transparent layers into inked and re-inked detailed portions of the buildings.  I have pretty much finished the figure.  I may have to go in and add some highlights depending on how the buildings evolve.  The challenge has been to capture the same level of contrast that A Bad Day to Hang Laundry has without over doing it.  Although, part of that is due to the fact this painting has some of the same elements, but simply functions differently visually due to the perspective and the fact the mouth of the sky runs in a more horizontal fashion.
