I think it's beautiful, and well worth the hair pulling ;).

Diane - this is really good - you have a great distance in the hills and the village feels like you are high, the textures on the buildings have been well rendered - maybe hair pulling is good for our art... lol

I like your painting with the lovely greens and the warm tones of the buildings. Nice work on that background mountain which adds to the depth. It must have been a challenge painting all those roofs.

Thank you thank you everyone. I really appreciate it.
Carrie, go to google, and then click on images instead of web. type in italian villages or something. I find lots of free ref. photos. No copywrite. And here on wet canvas. They have wonderful ref. pictures.
