Pinuccia,

I like your old mill painting. 

It's interesting how yours is dark and Sharon's is very light, but they are equally as good.

Great work, both of you.

Thanks ladies - and Nice job on your revisions Pinuccia. Painting is like a recipe - you can give the same recipe to 3 people and none of them will taste alike!
Cheers,
Sharon

Here is my rendition. I decided to make my mill stucco instead of brick and to retain that interesting fence on the right.

Pinuccia you painting is a lot better.  :clap: if you will look at the right side of the building where the rock wall is you will see that it goes down the side of the building. Your wall stops and it makes the building look like it has a hole under it. Or floating. Bring the wall down and it will make the building settle down. Hope this helps.

Good job, Susan - i like how you have water running through the mill! On the brick fence to the right,  I think your bricks would pop more if you added a bit of underlining beneath each stone - and I think the big hole is see through - a touch of orange will tie it into the background...Love the light on the house!
Cheers,
Sharon

Susan,

Great work on the old mill.  Agree with Sharon on "popping" the wall.

Love the water flowing from the mill wheel.

I did this in pen and ink a little while ago and just love this scene.   Thanks Dennis for a great lesson and I have learned how to do those darn pesky trees when they are in the background!  Here is my stab at this in pure watercolor this time:


For some reason my digital camera is picking up the shadows on the mill as very blue.  They are much more muted in person.
