Anyway, here's the picture development.

Anyway, when I got to this stage, I felt it really hadn't worked and that I had wasted this precious day. So I thought I'd try it again.

Well, they're studies really. So I now have ideas to improve upon the idea. I think I need more verticality - the buildings should really be taller. And I need to make a decision on the colour before I set out - pale but interesting colour should be my aim. A single figure, or a small group. And be thoughtful about the windows - some more clearly defined than others.
But overall, I also wonder if I've got the balance right on the amount of work in the picture. Again the unfinished images look quite interesting, and maybe a more abstract approach would make a better picture? Comments welcome.
