I know I will never be a master artist, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Tuscan landscape. When I paint I forget about everything except the enjoyment of creating something the way I see it. :smiley6600:

Thank you Nolan, my son says the one wall is skew but I don't care, I enjoyed it. My son is talking about moving to New Zealand and I said I am definitely going with.

YEAH, you are back, Louisa.  So good to see your work again.

Wow, you did not skimp on the effort with this.  Beautiful   Great trees.  Well done on the stonework.  Good perspective on that building - well painted.

My only concern (eye grabber) is the rounded red shrubbery.  The roundness seems distracting.  Might be best to try to break it up.

Otherwise, STUNNING!

So glad you are back.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: A fantastic job on the Tuscan landscape Louisa. Yes, art does that to me too, I get transported into another dimension for I am so focussed on what I am doing.  A form of escapism I suppose but Oh! so enjoyable. It is very therapeutic for sure.

Louisa:  Great painting.  The wall does not look too wacky.

Ms, Fig,

This Tuscan landscape is stunning - love the dappled light filtering thru that porch overhang.  Clouds are fantastic.  Great trees.  Everything just fits together so perfectly.

Love this.
