You may not like doing bldgs, but I wouldn't mind seeing more of them from you! This is Very Lovely. (The use of the white bldg & Walls as neg space is beautifully counterpointed by the ivy)

And as it so often is with you, Coops, when you do something you "just don't do", it turns out brilliant! Oriane will love this. :D

What do you nean you don't do buildings? You do 'em fine! Remember, buildings aren't buildings, they are just shapes and when they are interesting shapes then you got something.

And don't do windows either, as the old saying goes? Hahah.

Ms. Coops, this is delightful. I look at this as if the whitewashed walls are gesso primed canvas and the ivy leaves are popping in a staccato effervescence of green. I've never seen such earthy green colors twinkle before. But they do seem to with a certain flowing musicality like a lady's giggle.

I daresay there's something light and joyful to experience on these steps.

Very lovely for your friend. :):):)

Suprise from you, Coops.... lovely, sunny and talkative scenery.... and so much sun..very pleasant to look at. :)

Super sense of light! I'm also envious of how loosely painted it is - a skill I am still trying to master!
