Some photos in my file are pulled out many times before I paint them and this is one of those survivors. My challenge was that the original image was quite bland and the inspirations wasn't coming about how to push the colours. Today I think I got it.

There is something about this new format of sketches which I'm doing to prepare for some larger canvases. It is an oblong 3 times the length or height of the small side. I've always struggled with the 1:3 ratio, but I seem to have turned the corner, just like I did some time ago with square compositions. I hope you enjoy it.
