Measuring For Placement

 One of the most tedious parts of working on these paintings is trying to get all of the elements in the right places. Over the years I've found that I have to do very careful measurements or I'll mess things up; grids work nicely, but sometimes I get confused about whether I'm 15 inches in from the left or is it 16? 

Anyway, I lightened up the very dark left side of this piece today in Photoshop so I could see exactly where lines converge or walls begin and end, that sort of thing. It takes forever and leads to some blunt painting strokes. But eventually I get to where I want to be.
