Old Cottage

The Payne's grey was not the bluish W&N, but the D-R brand. I also used some Neutral Tint.

Very subtle and very effective, Mia. That's very good work.

Absolutely charming Mia.

Lovely Mia. That foliage bottom left is perfect and the pen and wash as a whole is so good!

Its all worked out beautifully Mia, love these pen and washes.

Thank you very much Lewis, Fiona, Louise and Alan for your encouraging and positive comments. I enjoyed doing this and I am rather pleased with the result :)

Very effective as a monochrome Mia, especially the markings on the cottage. So beautifully painted.

Love your use of line and limited palette.

Ah so lovely Mia, great background too. I like the DR payees grey better.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments Carole, Teresa and Carole.

So effective Mia, it's beautiful.

Many thanks Val and Dennis. Your positive comments are always highly appreciated.

I love your pen and wash drawings and this is another beauty Mia.

Beautifully done Mia - lovely understated picture.

Thank you very much Margaret and Margaret for taking the time to have a look and post such nice comments.

A pen and wash. I used a very limited palette, almost monochrome: Payne's grey and Davy's grey. Size: 25x37 cm. All comments are very welcome :)
