Fire Brigade Emergency WIP

Work in progress but very near to being finished. As you look through these shots you can see the oak tree in the background becoming more defined and then it shrinks back into the mist. I felt it was coming forward too much and appeared to be on the back of the fire engine rather than well behind it.
Sepia underpainting completed

Washed in a background, smoke clouds, and started to block in the fire engine

Defined the hare heads and ladder. Check out the 'stand out' oak tree.

Now the oak tree is further back and the left bank is taking shape.

The painting in it's current state.
