Greyscale version of Landscape

I am still at the B&W stage of the painting, but any comment on composition and basic shape detail would be appreciated. The expedition is getting closer to the top, and the spire-like outcropes are related to the description in the book.







I am going a bit too dark here so I will lighten it up a bit. Plus I can see now in smaller scale that the lower part of the cliff falls too quickly.

It did seem a bit dark for Minas Tirith

Hey paul, I think you should be looking at breaking up the line of the top of the tepui.. Also in fridays class we'll look at perspective too. Look at all the repeating shapes and lines in the piece and try and break them up. Youa are creating a real sense of depth though, good stuff.. Phill
