Muse-ic - 22

Thought you might like to get some idea of the scale of this piece..not as large as some of my more recent pieces...the idea being to increase the rate at which I complete the finished pictures...saying that, today I passed the 80 hour mark so far! I estimate 250 hours + to complete!

Below you can also see pencil work that I laid down today which will become the supporting structure for the bridge...I originally sketched plans for two arches but decided that one big arch would fit the composition better...You might notice that at this stage, I've left outlines around my fingers and the birds...these will be shaded in a ta  later date.
