This is the house of a friend where we all gathered for a wedding last summer. It was a truly lovely trip and I wanted to give the host a gift to remember the day.

It is 14 x20 inch. on Canson, rough side. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/28-Aug-2013/1174506-house.jpg

im sure they will love the gift!

The colours are lovely and your composition, while unusual, actually works very nicely.

If its finished, then dont touch it, but my only suggestion (for future works) would be to try to vary your edges a little - there's a lot of hard edges here & softening some up would help with visual interest a lot.

Good work!

Thanks Justin, I appreciate it. I purposely chose to keep this one super crisp to reflect the weather and clarity of the day. Having said that, you're probably right and you saw what you saw.
Thanks for your feedback.

I like this a lot, mainly because you've achieved a good sense of depth in this, making it 3D, despite the front on view of the house. I see the subtle differences in the grass and know it was was beautifully cut for the occasion, as was the hedge. Your friends will love it.

Thank you Deirde,

The grass was tricky for me. I had trouble with the balance between variation and uniformity. I settled on mostly uniform.
Thank you for your thoughts.

This is great. I thought it was the reference picture at first. Pam
