Pinuccia you did a nice painting,   :clap: :clap: :clap:   one thing I would modify is the left hand side tree, there are branches that are on the house but the tree seem to be in the back because the base of the trunck is to far away, you should bring it down in front of the bridge.  (Check Dennis' painting).  Hope this helps.

 :thankyou: Danielle. I really appreciate your advice. I  had a look at Dennis painting and your so right the trees on the left need modifying. Actually I wasen`t too happy with that side of the painting and you kindly made me see what was wrong. Hopefully I will be able to fix it. Thank you again. Have a Merry Christmas.  :1hug:  Pinuccia.

Do not worry, you can fix it, it is not has hard has people think it is.   

I myself practicaly ruined  my first lesson of the realistic flower by putting a background. It is still not as nice as the white background.  I think I will post it in the first lesson to show that things can be fixed to a certain degree.

Nice job, Pinnucia! I can't wait to do tackle this lesson myself. I agree about the tree - you should be able to correct that easily. Thanks for leading the way on this class!
Cheers,
Sharon

Loved having such a great lesson to come home to - lot of details, good way to dive back into watercolor painting without getting too overwhelmed.  I'm sure there is lots of room for improvement so please send any suggestions my way...thanks for the great lesson, Dennis!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,

You did not lose your touch while in PV.  Love your tree skeletons - so well shaped!

Sharon nice job. I like your trees and your building. The only thing that does not look right to me is the water wheel. The spokes (or what ever they are call) looks like they are angled up. Look at the one Dennis did. You will see what I am saying.  :clap:

Thanks Mea, Retta and Nina. And I'll take a stab at correcting the wheel spokes - thanks for the suggestion!
Cheers,
