A picture in three stages…

My lovely husband asked me recently if I would paint him a picture of a local tower, for him to hang on the wall of his office. He took the following photo to inspire me :

I wasn’t quite sure how I would recreate this and so my initial attempt is very simplistic:

I was pleased with the colour mixes and surprised myself by actually leaving some white on the paper. I was however, convinced that I should paint something a little more abstract. This is the result:

I’m really pleasantly surprised by this result. I’ve not yet shown it to my husband, I hope he will like it.
