Little Houses

I love the aged look of the colourful houses perched on the hills here. I use crackling varnish to create a layered, worn appearance.

I put my work up on the wall a lot so I can check out the composition and colour balance from a distance.

I put some bronze highlights in to catch the light.
So Good to be painting again ! :)
