Danielle,

Your old mill painting is beautiful.  My only suggestion is to widen the area of sky a bit at the roofline as it looks too rectangular.

Otherwise, it is so very nice!

Lovely painting of the Old Mill, Danielle.

Just had a chance to look at Pinuccia's, Sharon's and Mary Lou's.  Each one different, I love them all.

Beautiful, Danielle!  :yippee:  I don't think the background is too dark. It invokes a certain mood.

Danielle  its beautiful. Your trees are so real. The shading on the front of the Mil so good. I still have to adjust my brick wall and the water stream flowing from the wheel will do next week. :clap: :clap:
