This is probably the longest time I have taken for a class!Life just kept coming in the way!!Everytime I came back to it..it was a mission.. because now I had mix the right colours...which was hard most of the time...I overdid the leaves. And lost all the roughness of the bricks!
Overall really enjoyed the class.the way I started I thought it will the fastest painting I have done!!,🙄
Oh yes...ghosts make me nervous , therefore not very apparent figure shadow in the doorway 8)
 Really appreciate your feedback
Thank you Dennis for your feedback on OAL!

Zayn,

Hard to tell that you had problems with this.  It looks really good - especially the stonework.

Not quite sure what the black shape is in the foreground.

I think it's ground again with rough stonework.becuase there is lot of light in that area..couldn't see properly.I guess I should given more attention to that part..it doesn't look like light,,and shadow!
Appreciate your feedback Mea!!

Zayn, the leaves look very realistic.  O0   I couldn't make out what the black bit was either. I do see your other worldly friend in the doorway... bound to be a story there!

The light on the stone definitely shows it to be a very bright hot day. Well done.  O0 O0 O0
Cheers, Val

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Oh! Zayn, I think you have done a superb job.  I love your trees, brickwork and especially the window at the top of the building which is done so well.  Don't talk about ghosts ... my late Dad used to see them all the time.    Patricia

When I said, "leave it", I didn't mean add more leaves!  :2funny:
I really like this, Zayn. The only thing I don't like are the black blobs coming into the foreground. They are a bit too stark for me and keep drawing my eye. The upper window, on the other hand, is superb.
