Cooktown Top Pub Painting in Acrylic

Started a new painting today.  Still working on seascape but this gives me variety and makes painting more interesting.  So far have just laid in the under-painting following the tonal values and some colour indicators.  When looking at the painting against the photo I can pick up errors in perspective and shapes but I still like the overall 'feel' of the painting over the photo.  More painterly!  You can see the dark red ground that I used in sealing the canvas showing in unpainted areas of the canvas which made it easier to decide on tonal values.
