This will be a gift for my sister who was just elected Superior General of her congregation of nuns which spans 14 countries on 4 continents.  She will move to Rome in November for six years to assume her duties.


 It is a line and wash of the dome of St. Peter Basilica at the Vatican, as seen from the garden side.  Will fit an 11 x 14 inch mat.

aloha

Mea, I love the drawing of the building, really like the painting generally. The only possible improvement... maybe the treee on the artist's left  is a bit sparse, but I can't tell you how to improve it. But I don't think you really have anything to worry about. Maybe you should sign it Da Vinci or Michael Angelo if your sister is really posh?

Thank you, Linley.  My sister is definitely not POSH.  She is the most down-to-earth person one could meet. 

I totally agree with you on the tree.  It will be the first thing I fix on the second painting.

Thank you for commenting.  It is very important to me to get constructive input.

I am so happy you are part of the PB family.

aloha

Mea, the building is great.  I agree with Linley about the tree.  What I see is that the tree is too symmetrical and straight.  The tree on the right looks more like a feather...the branches form v's...should be more random.  With those two fixes, you will have an excellent painting.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Oops, realized I neglected to wish congratulations to your sister.  You must be proud!

Thanks, Diane.

Thanks, Mary Lou.  I found a much clearer reference photo to use which shows the shapes much clearer.

Yes, we are so proud of my sister.

   :pray:   Benediciones for your sister Mea.

I am late, but I agree the trees at the edges just need to be sorted.  O0   Lovely ink and wash otherwise.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Here's a little practice piece (6" x 8") I did today of a church in the English countryside.

I will use most of the right side on a greeting card, then maybe add something more to the left side and use that on a smaller card, too.


Waste not; want not.  Hallmark Cards must hate me.

Hi Mea, yes there is a slight 'glitch' in the new programming. Nolan and the team are working on resolving the situation. We ask all to have patience and refrain from posting any photos to your gallery or the forum until it is sorted.  :thankyou:
Cheers, Val
