Manhattan Bridge Start

This is a new painting for some friends who wanted something about New York.
The guy is from New York originally and misses the Bid Apple occasionally. This image is of the Manhattan bridge as seen from Brooklyn. It is 48" x 32"
I think that this was the most intensive layout that I have done to date.
I was not able to visit New York to do this, so I scrounged an image off the internet, squeezed it a bit and went at it.
This will be a good base for the final painting and I hope to keep a loose feel over the harder line layout.
There is quite a bit more detail in the foreground buildings, but I want to keep them more simple to emphasize the bridge beyond.
