This is approx. 15x9. Watercolour, there is about 3 inches not shown due to the size of the scanner. the roof of the old house is half tin and half slate, its taken from a photo I took myself some time ago.

This is a charmer. The foreground is particularly nice and done well. The composition is planned to really bring the viewer into and stay inside the painting. And the sense of depth is apparent. The only suggestion I have is to hold your hand over the right side up to and including the object on the lower right and see how the composition strengthens even more.

Lovely

Thanks Artistry, I have to agree with you about the lower right corner, I had though about leaving it out altogether, but as you see I didn't. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Hugh, it's nice to see you here! I've been bopping around WC for several months now and
it seems like one can get some good, old - fashioned critique in these category rooms. I'm curious; do you do any location painting? There's some beautiful countryside in England and I'd love to see more of it through your palette! It's all the travel I can afford at this time!

Thanks Robert, I was wondering where you were hiding http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.giflol, would scenes from Ireland do instead of England??? cause thats where I live, well at least we have the 40 shades of green here, usually covered in mud because of all the wet weather we get, its even snowing now as I type this!!!!. Yes I do a lot of location painting, but its usually in the spring/summer time, don't like the cold you see. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
