ok for some reason it never posts my pics so I am posting them here. Note***the second one was taken after i signed the painting but that was the only change made....I am just learning to use my new digital camera so...thats why there is such a difference in the colors of the 2. In reality the color is somewhere between the 2.

I am not a stickler for perspective. I usually just eye it with pretty good results. I am wondering about that eve trough and drainpipe though, on the left hand gable. Its angle matches that of the roofline of the gable on the right. But it looks wrong. Should it not match the angle of the roof line of the dormer windows next to it?

Corvus, I'm not sure what exactly you mean. Here is the photo that i took and used for refference. Left me know if that clarifies it at all.

Perspective is something I avoid like the flu and you leap right into it! Bravo!
This is so well done and so interesting, I could stare at if forever and just let my eye roam around the canvas.. it's really wonderful.... Donna
