Cottage on the Shore by jjpeabody Cottage on the Shore by jjpeabody
This is my best piece so far.  I started out with line art which I never do.  I find line art tends to constrain me too much so I started out with a black and white rough sketch, line art over it, and then painted.  The line art for this was very rough.  It lacked many of the details you see here even the foreground wasn't complete in it because I had no idea what I was going to put there.  This method seemed to work well for me so I need to experiment with it more.

The house and setting is gorgeous and well done! I'd also want to live in such an environment.

As a critique, the perspective to the wing to the left seems to be off a little compared to the house in the forefront. Maybe they're two separate dwellings and weren't built straight?

Beautiful. It reminds me of the old houses in my village, with a wooden structure, and of Miyazaki's movies, in particular Howl's Moving Castle (he used Alsatian houses as an inspiration for the background)
