Sorry I haven't posted for a while. Here's one I've recently been working on - another of the houses almost hidden by lush gardens from my walks around St. Kilda when I was in Australia. This is on a 20"x20" canvas.

I like it. You really had some great subjects to paint from your walks in Australia. I look forward to following the progress.

Thanks Judy and Dayle! Smile Here's my update. I've got most of the values blocked in now - next step will be adjusting the colours and adding a bit more detail.

Sofie,

Very nice liking this hidden cottage.....love your pictures.....I noticed several of your paintings have an adventure feeling like going through places and things, very stirring, like an exploration of whats there.....

....Looking forward to the next steps.

Nice progress. I like the idea of seeing a "secret" place.

Thanks Dana, Crystal, and Alan. Smile

There is a story behind this painting. I came across a garden with a high wall I could not see over, and a solid gate that I could not see through, so I needed to see what it was like. i put my camera on top of the wall and pressed the button. The garden wall with the steps, and house shrouded by greenery was revealed to me. Actually I couldn't see as much of the house as this so I had to make bits of it up, which only made painting it more fun.

what a neat and exciting way to get a reference picture. It certainly adds interest to the painting which is really progressing beautifully.
