This is where I started the whole project...laying out the angles for the covered walkway and pillars. I discussed the design with the homeonwners and we brought the far opening closer and did away with some of the pillars.
I started blocking in the scene with green and got a tad carried away, so had to backup and change colors to make it more soothing and less GREEN.
I added a village in the distance beyond a small hill.
Then I added a second smaller village at the top of a hill with a road leading the way. I know these are hard to see..but they are there!
