I have done a little modifying to this pictures, taking into consideration the comments from some of you.  I think it looks better.  Thanks for the input.  Let me know your opinion.

 :thankyou: for the nice comments. I do like it a lot better myself.  I really appreciated the critique.  It helps me be a better painter.   :painting:


Lillian, yes it is watercolor. 


It took a bet of finagling to make the road wider and put the church in without it looking like I added them.  A magic eraser or a scrubby brush do a nice job removing some of the paint so I could get down to a lighter shade and able to add the other colors over the top.

Peg...Wow...I love your painting.  :clap: :clap:  You have done fantastic work on it and hope your going to frame and hang!

Now I am not normally into auto paintings, but this one struck a cord because it was my first car. I just loved that little thing.  sigh....
