You will have seen the sketch for this painting a few posts ago...I thought I'd try a little different "style" of pen and ink for this one. I did all the pen work first and tried to get most of the shadows in in pen.
This gives quite a different look to the whole painting. It is more like a "sketch" than a painting.
This is not signed yet. I think I'm going to darken the front screens on the porch on the front some. I see I cut the left side off a little when I cropped it...it has a bell hanging off to the left and you can see this. I think I'll crop off some of the darker tree near the top left which is pulling my eye off the paper.
When I get those done I'll post it again. Susan...do you see anything else that might need addressing?
