The Fontana dell'Ovato

Here are some photographs of the halfway stage of a mural I am currently working on.
It is an interpretation of the The Fontana dell'Ovato ("Oval Fountain") which can be seen at Villa d'Este, Tivoli near Rome in Italy.

At this stage I have very loosely painted in the design in raw umber and then I am gradually building up the washes of colour. I intend for the finished piece to be more suggested rather than get bogged down in too much detail.
