If anything I'd cool down the background hills Avril. But that's nit-picking: it's remains a lovely intimate little watercolour.
Thanks for your feedback on Disgrazia/Disglacia.

I belong to the school of doing shadows in local colour (i.e. the colour of the building, but just shade darker as appropriate). Occasionally, shadows need to have a blue tone, but on these buildings I feel that would be a little out of step with the warm tones of walls. Have you thought of just using a darker colour of the walls, with a touch of blue dropped in. However, I am not so experienced in these matters, so probably others are better to advise.

Avril, this is a very nice, sensitive piece of work exactly as it is.. As blue tends to recede, I would leave the lovely warm pink shadows in the foreground. You have achieved a lovely depth here...I think your painting is delightful.

This is beautiful Avril and I agree with Ruth, it looks just great as it is. Maybe Thea is right and just a little touch of blue in the foreground shadows would bring the whole painting together, but I am no expert.

A really lovely little painting as it is I think. A good perspective and I like the vignette style.

This is smashing Avril - your lovely light touch again. Just off to try my hand at a watercolour - cannot seem to get motivated lately.
