This is so well planned Michael and you wouldn't know it lovely

I love it.

A very pleasing color palette Michael. I am curious if you were there to paint this? (As I see the shadows in the view beyond indicating the sun to the right, I am curious if the front of the room would be this light on the floor or if the foreground would be darker as we look out the window to the sunlit gardens? perhaps the inside room is lit within)

Thank you Jennifer, Dennis, Shirley and Nancy. In answer to your question, Nancy, I painted this at home from a photo I took at Kingston Lacy a few days earlier and, yes, I would say the floor was that light. It was a fine sunny day and the window is very tall letting a lot of light in.

It has a lovely bright and sunny atmosphere Michael, thanks so much for answering my question. (part of the issue in light change for me is the computer monitor). Wish I could see this lovely watercolor in person!

It is a very grand window Michael and you have caught the light effect so well.

A super painting Michael.

Thank you Stephen & Margatet. Kingston Lacy (National Trust) is worth a visit if you have never been.
