Couple Dancers and City Grocery

I still have detail work to do on the couple.  I am debating painting windows in the background looking through to dark branches.  Thoughts?  I almost like it simple.  Why am I painting this? Because I found a picture I like.

I sketched this from the picture to the left a couple weeks ago.  I started with the underpainting tonight.  I am trying to follow the rulebooks and paint the underpainting first.  (Ok, the dark blue is too dark for a typical underpainting but it'll be fine.)  Remember, don't judge by the underpainting.  They are always ugly and the colors are never final!  This one should be challenging to say the least.  Straight lines are my enemy!

yesterday afternoon

I present my first video in Lightroom 3 (in beta). I have no idea what I am doing...

P.S. I had a fun song playing by the Monkees but YouTube removed it due to Copyright infringement. Boo
