the owner of the house on the right wanted to
have a memoir. (Is this English?!)

Nice one ! It seems to me that you are getting a very good balance in your work concerning the opaque colour paint application and the more tranparent paint wash or drybrush.

Very effective and pleasing to the eye.

'til next, Frank.

I like it, I like the soft colors you have and the hint of grasses in the field. Memoir is french but we use it in America too, its worked its way into English.

Thank you all,

It's a way of building my painting up, ... very carefully.
Glad that you noticed.

The Epiphany Artist,
Thanks Terry.

Glad that you do Lori, painted it against the upcoming Sun. I filters down the lots of details nicely.

I bet they didn't Rob, they where not home at the time i painted it.

Thank you, building it up this way
has it positive side. A bit like watercolor i guess.
