Re: Quaint

Looking good! Try adding more variation of color in your tree line and in the foreground...

Re: Quaint

Perhaps wash out some broken down fence posts and rails to the left side of the composition, preferably pointing toward the barn. You could even mix a little white gouache with your paint to make it opaque and paint over the background.

Re: Quaint

Looking much better Joni. I like the addition of the fence on the left.

You might add a little change in tone to the lower part of the roof. If the sun is coming from the upper left, it would hit the top part a little stronger than it would the lower part and the eave on the right side would probably be even more shaded than you are showing it.

Re: Quaint

Thanks again! Would working on the trees and ground cover now too hurt or help this?

Re: Quaint

That's fine Joni, I like the light on the conifers.

I would put this away now, having learnt a few things about composition and look for a new subject.
