Waiting for Madness at Glastonbury

Waiting for Madness at Glastonbury

This is the one you have been waiting for! Actually its a small section of the crowd waiting for Madness to come on stage at Galstonbury. There were more people but they were moving too much and I was losing my composition. I feel physically ill looking at this picture because it is so far removed from what I hoped to achieve. It had its moments when i had just done the treeline, the flags and the umbrella plus a quick scamp over the figures. I should have stopped there. I painted it at home from memory. I scanned the sketch because I was quite pleased with that and knew i would ruin it with my painting.
