I did another P & I scene.  This is from a photo of an area of Cinque Terre.  My paper is slightly curved, so it is photographing a bit askew.

Mary Lou,

I really like this.  Great sense of distance.   Good colors.

I was just studying about vanishing points, so I see what Tania means about those two windows.

Otherwise, it's gorgeous.

Thank Christine, Tania and Mea.   As far as the windows, I see on the photo posted they look rather out of perspective but not on my original...My paper was curled in that area....Will try for a better photo ....I appreciate your comments very much!

Thank you Danielle, Natalie and Val. 

I have added a close up of the windows in question.   They actually look okay to me in the original painting and to my husband as well.   Now looking at the close up, perhaps the one with the open shutters is a bit off but unfortunately I wouldn't how to fix it without creating a problem and ruining the whole painting.  A learning process, and these windows always give me a bit of headache  :( .  But I see that I am getting better not worse, so that is a plus!
