Danielle....Outstanding!!!  It's gorgeous.  I, too, was wondering about my background and sky being too dark, ....but.....it's that kinda day!!  LOL
I'm just at the shadow stage, but I hope it comes out even half as well as yours.  It's so lovely.  Be sure to frame it.

This is my third revision of the Old Mill.  I have adjusted the  archway on the front of the building.  Added water flowing from the wheel and extended down the brick wall on the right hand side. Have I improved it any input. would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I finally finished it!!  Phone camera didn't pick up the brickwork, and a few other things.  LOL   Got the frame just fine... :2funny: .
I'd like to redo this one for my living room.

Thanks, Danielle.  I enjoyed doing this one, and there is some "tweaking" to be done.

Retta, don't you just hate when you can't photograph once behind the glazing
You've done a lovely job with this watercolor.  :clap:
