.......... It's my entry for Different Strokes this month. April's DS project and challenge. (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=615934)

16x20" on canvas board - so it will need framing if I get around to it!:)


Thanks for looking :)

Four scans and a bit of stitching and adjusting!
The Shack is brighter than the scan shows - somewhere between the two!!!

Wow! This has so much atmosphere and depth! Your palette is perfect and all the colors seem to enliven each other. Great size too! Awesome all the way around. Love sunflowers in paintings. Yours are brilliant. Love those 16x20 canvas boards as we can buy near museum quality over the counter frames in 16x20.

I've scanned and stitched to get a closer approximation to the colours - I couldn't get a decent photo at all.

Your joy of painting is very evident in this lovely painting:)

I forgot about this challenge, was going to enter it myself... oh well, next month.

You have a terrific sense of color. I like the purple shack especially, it's a perfect complement to the yellow of the sunflowers. Beautifully done!
