I painted mine on a 16" x 20" canvas, but you are welcome to go larger O0

Hello,

I didn't want to continue with the veranda (top left) until i fixed it.  Please let me know if i should paint over it to correct the angle, or how I should proceed to correct it.


Thank you!  :painting:

the painting is coming along nicely :clap: :clap: :clap:

The quickest and easiest fix for the incorrect pergola pole angles is to add more vine to it so that you only have a few bits of pole showing through here and there O0

Finally finished my Tuscan Landscape!  I had a lot of fun and a lot of days and nights of stretching!  I look forward to learning more and painting more. 

Thank you for your wonderful instruction Nolan.  I appreciate any feedback.

You have done a great job Alice, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

I do however find that the colour used for the distant villa, near mountain and path are too close to each other. Leave the painting to dry, then use a colour wash or glaze to change at least the path colour by using raw umber and white so it becomes more grey O0
