Study for Ashton Market

I've gone as far as I can with the drawing as I'm running out of time, I would say the drawing still needs work but I need to get it on to the canvas and Ill sort it out there. The drawing is now 40x32 inches slightly bigger than the A4 watercolour study of the previous post. This is the largest painting I've done so far I normally I use canvas panels no bigger than A1 in size. The canvas I bought is a cheap one from The Works but I wouldn't recommend them I'll have to Gesso it to be on the safe side, remove the dints and fill in the dints I cant remove. I suppose you get what you pay for but at least I won't have to buy an expensive frame now.

Study for Ashton Market

There's a art competition for Ashton Market which is in Lancs, I have been to Ashton Market around a million times in my lifetime as I used to live only a few miles from there and spent a lot of my youth in Ashton. Though I now live in North Wales I decided to go down and get some photos, the competition deadline is at the end of the month so I've still got a couple of weeks to produce something. The watercolour study below might be the one, just a few tweaks more detail, enlarged and done on Acrylics. I would have liked to do it in oil paints but there's no time for it to dry, any comments, suggestions welcome.
