Starting a new watercolor painting

I have started a new watercolor painting on Brunellesch's Dome this week. The reference was a photo taken by KL a few years ago when he was on backpack in Florence, Italy. I visited this place during Christmas in 1969.
I have done a pencil sketch on a piece of 22"x30" size, 300 gsm watercolor paper (see above). The following adjustments have been made on the painting:
1. The extreme right building was shifted further right to give more space to the central attraction. The extra space was filled by more Baptistry and a small part of Giotto Tower.
2. The botton portion extended to give more space and more complete figures on the road.
