Splendid attempt Mia.

Thank you very much Jim.

This looks wonderful Mia, such a lovely little cabin. I must get around to starting mine.

I like this a lot! As for your question, yes, I think the trees on the right would be better a little darker, perhaps not quite as dark as those behind the cabin.

This looks terrific in quink Mia, well thought of it’s a smashing sketch.

Lovely work, Mia. It is good as it is.

I love your pen and ink version Mia, it gives it such a crisp clean look.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to have a look and posting such positive comments. Merry Christmas!

Really like the pen and wash style, Mia, your little cabin is lovely.

Thank you very much, Jenny. I appreciate.

I like the trees as they are Mia, makes some look further away than others.

Many many thanks, Sandra. I will leave them as they are (I think).

Thank you very much, Satu.

Great interpretation Mia.

Thank you so much, Michael.

Thank you very much Jennifer.

Wow, that was difficult! I made the drawing with an Artline marker yesterday and couldn't decide: colour or monochrome? So today I used diluted Quink Ink to give it a wash. I am not quite sure about the trees in the background right side. Should I darken them like the ones behind the cabin or not. All comments are very welcome.
