  • Pretty painting Diana - nice story and complimentary colours. Well done.

  • I for one am very impressed with your gallery additions this month so far alone...this reminds me of similar cottages that once existed to the north of Huddersfield...their weavers cottages had the doorway and an extensive row of windows...I like what I see...bold clear-lines...strong colours...interesting subjects....

  • Diana, really like the way you have made the purple the dominant wash. I think the variation in colour on the end wall behind the cottage is what you have been aiming for and it works so well. The variety in colour in the foliage also is excellent. I know what you have been trying to achieve and this is definitely on the right track. A really pretty painting and one with real meaning for you - well done indeed!

  • I like the colours you've used in this one and you've not overdone the detail. A nice story to go with it as well,

  • very beautiful, Diana. I love all the details in this, the shade next to the sidewalk, very nice.

  • Thank you so much for the very kind and helpful comments. I was quite surprised at how purple this one turned out- it wasn't planned to be like that, it just happened. It's a lovely little cottage that gets overlooked. I'd love to see inside it. I'm still not sure about the purple, it really was a surprise ; I think I am getting used to it now LOL. What I do like and was very pleased about was the subtle shading on the road where it goes from light to shadow. I was rubbing out pencil marks and noticed it lifted the paint ever so slightly so I rubbed harder and it left the tops of the paper like a very subtle sparkle.
