Beautiful painting Karen. Sad abandoned 😞

Nicely captured, Karen -love the detail and the tired ageing you've painted.

A really well done piece of painting full marks in every way....

Wonderful textures and colors. Your approach is excellent. I love to paint these old structures, as, apparently, you do also.

So sad to see houses like this but wonderful for being painted and this is a stunner

Excellent painting, great subject. I love stumbling across these buildings, and you’ve captured this one really well.

Thank you very much everyone for your very encouraging comments; the cottage really was asking to be painted!

A lovely old building painted beautifully, wonder what the story is .

Thank you Carole and Paul. I wonder that too Paul, sometimes I think it would be nice to just pop back in time!

I really like it Karen. Well painted and great atmosphere to it.

Great atmosphere Karen and I love the wild foliage you have painted so beautifully. Although abandoned there is a charm and beauty, which you have portrayed so well.

That is absolutely superb, Karen. I love the detail especially the derelict cottage.

Wonderful acrylic painting, Karen. Such an atmosphere you've created!

Thank you all for your really kind posts; they are very much appreciated.

Wonderful painting Karen, I can see why you wanted to capture this. Excellent character and detail.

A brilliant painting Karen. Everything about it is so well thought out. The textures on the old house, the foliage, the dry twiggy plants in the garden… I can conjure up a story here.

Such a beautiful painting, very well done indeed

This is lovely Karen.

Thank you Tessa, Marjorie, Romila and Diane for your very generous comments,

Cracking painting Karen! The way you have painted the cottage is superb especially.

Thank you Fiona.
