Canto 2: Castle Ruins

In the grand scheme of a painting it's the combination of big moments and little moments that make a successful painting.  This painting is taking that statement to the extreme when it comes to all the stone architecture in the ruins behind the two figures.  I've been working on this part for days.  Fortunately I'm rounding out my sessions in the next day or so and I'll be able to resume working on the two figures.  This isn't the best shot (the top is washed out a little by my lighting) but it demonstrates how far I am at the moment.  Hopefully, by my next post I'll be back to working on the two main figures.
