I forgot to say that I did a drawing under the oil pastels with a thin permanent pen and then put the oil pastels on top, some of the pen is still visible on the top of the lighthouse, I think my lighthouse is a bit squint will need to fix it

Very nice especially the sky!!!

Not sure what 'squint' means but the top of the lighthouse looks offset a bit from the supporting structure. Really nice texture in your buildings. I think you could use a bit more texture in the foreground area. Either lighten or darken the road going uphil so it doesn't blend into the wall.

Quite an undertaking! and lastly, the sky is beautiful!!

Real nice painting. I agree with Carly on the foreground, but the buildings are wonderful - from coloring to texture. And, I especially like your sky and cloud structure.

Thanks Mary, I love doing skies especially clouds, I definitely need to do more on the foreground which should be rocks as its near the sea,there is a small path as well, will post again with another photo when I get the alterations done, thanks for all the help Lesley

Nice work and the lighthouse top is a bit askew. I too agree with the foreground area, but the sky is just beautiful....
