A change from trying "loose" to lots of detail. My husband likes vintage travel posters and suggested I try to do one.  I copied this one for Japan.  What do you think?

Mary Lou,

Wow, you really did some fine detailing here.  Your little windows are so precise.  Love the tiled roof.

The cherry tree needs a bit more color/darks since it appears to be in the foreground.

I think you have done such a wonderful job on this!!

Thanks Mea, Natalie and Robin.   Mea the tree and the left side of the rock wall in the forefront are darker in the original.  My digital camera doesn't do the colors justice.   Thanks for the comments, always appreciated.

Thank you Val, yes, bridges are great, aren't they.  Love covered bridges! Thank you Sally, I appreciate it.   Sharon,  thank you, you are too nice.  I am a big fan of yours, and I know you will do extremely well no matter what medium you try!
