That's a cracker, Carole. It's one of those pictures that lets your imagination run. It's your ideal place to live, the two houses have a ghostly look to me - not spooky - more like memories of houses that used to be. But that's just me, I love the painting whatever it means.

Dramatic and all rather interesting Carole, great contrast with the light cottages.

So romantic and inspirational Carole. The w/c and gouache work well together.

Romance and drama rolled into an ideal place, lovely wistful feeling in this, Carole!

Very moody and evocative, those dark trees look sinister, what lurks within? Been watching the re runs of Lord of the Ring on tv lately!

I love this Carole. Your choice of colours are right up my street and love that threatening sky! I love gouache with watercolour. 👍🏻

Fabulous atmospheric painting and place would have to forgo your garden if you lived

Great painting Carole! I like the glow of the house under the ominous sky.

Ooh Carole, I'd also like to live somewhere like this where you could walk straight on to the beach and watch the sea from your window. It's a lovely painting, the sky is so good and I like the wall in the foreground. It's good to dream!

Fantastic Carole especially from your mind , it's hard I do it a lot. What a view you would have living there.

I agree Carole. House by the sea and trees down to the beach, gorgeous.

Thanks you are all very kind, glad you share my dreams :))

I could do with being there for a few weeks myself. This caught my imagination straight away Carole. Beautiful.

Quite different for you Carole but really well painted, I love the dramatic sky and the white cottages just lighten everything up.

Thank you very much Carolyn and Linda.

You have managed to convey a beautiful secluded place.

Beautiful painting with lovely colour contrasts. I wouldn't mind living near that beach either.

Lovely painting Carole, full of atmosphere and calmness. the sky is great.

An unusual subject for you, Carole. A great sky here and very dramatic.

Thank you very much, so pleased you all liked this.

Love those ghost like cottages Carole, very atmospheric.

Hang on Studio Wall

An ideal place to live in my imagination. Watercolour and bit of gouache.
