Not bad for a "10min scrub"!
Nice to see donated resources being put to good use!

PS. Had to Google hydro poll. Seems I grew up knowing them as telephone/telegraph polls. Still not much wiser though as to why the use of the word "hydro":confused:

Because they might hold up the hydro or telephone, etc.lines in some places :D

Nice one Jean! if I were to make a suggestion, and if you are going deliberately for a flatter look than usual, where it becomes more about you doing a painting where you're putting information in as a clue to the audience what is there, letting them craft in their heads the full dimensionality of the place, I would think that you nailed it. Some people do go for that look.

If you wanted to create the illusion of more depth however, one of the ways that you could do it, is the area between the holes in the fence could be handled showing depth as if it would grade date later as it goes farther back. Right now it's a little solid, and flat feeling. But like I said it you could make that look work for you to, in a more folk art sort of way. Many have gained fame doing just that. But having seen your other work of still life's using a trompe l'oeil or 'fool the eye' technique, that shows me that you have an interest in a more naturalistic approach. So that's why I'm bringing it up right now with this painting specifically.

Your comments are very much appreciated Rondo and Marilyn Anne

Getting the upgrade when it is out and about is the only reason I got the W8.1 Rondo :D

How'd I miss this one?! Awesome fence, I like things like this. . . there is something about the rural feel of things that reminds me of my youth. Pretty sure I used to hop a fence much like that one on a near day to day basis on the walk home from school, seems like a long time ago now though.
