Karen you are the master of "getting it done"  No excuses, just do it.  Very admirable.  Nice painting as usual.

Hi Val,
Anchored again, huh?  I hope your internet is working well so you can get the replays.  :gl2:

This one I painted along with Dennis. I grew rather tired around midnight. Which is marked on the picture.

The second one is a great improvement, Harald  :clap: :clap:

The bricks in the shadow areas are very much too dark. they must be softened quite a bit - look at my painting. Detail disappears quite a bit in the shadow areas.

The bricks on the wall on the left, as well as the stone wall must also be softened as they move into the distance. The rest of the painting is fine.

Do these changes and your painting will look great  O0

Thanks for he comments everyone. There are some very observant people on Paintbasket! Harald, i wondered when yours was coming. They are looking good - and you have a straight fence! At least I'm not painting at midnight! If i paint at night my colurs all look different in the morning - browns have turned blue and other colurs misbehaved.
 I need some good lighting. My Optometrist told me to get incandescent light bulbs with reflector paint on the tops but i haven't done this yet. He says the eco bulbs i have now are rubbish
