    Cotswold Mill - another version

    Not traced - all my own (hard) work. Is the waterwheel too dark - it seems to be taking over?

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    I think it might be a little dark. The perspective is a little off too, I think. I like the canvas you've used, which one is it?

    Thanks for your input - I agree the wheel is off - I should learn that I don't have to follow the reference. The photo was very dark in that area and it was hard to see the outline of the waterwheel. So I guessed a bit.

    I used Essential Canvas.

    Much better. The wheel perspective is still a bit off, i'm struggling whit perspective as well. in traditional painting you could just toss a t square up and use it as a guide. i'm still learning the ruler use as well as AR.
    Warm Regards,

    Hi June Yes it Looks Ok Apart from the Water Wheel Iif you takethe line of the roof the shaft of the water-wheel will follow the same line and the blades of the wheel plus its just as likely they would have taken the shaft into a bearing in the wall on the left also the wall would be built close to the wheel so the there no
    passage of the water to bypass the wheel or they have built a seperate bypass so to save the wheel working all the time
    plus repair work to the wheel ok CIAO Hoo Foo

    Right again Mr.Ploos - I resized down the photo so that it was manageable - I still thought it was attached to the cream building but going back and looking at the original large photo I can see that what I thought was a wall is in fact another building. It's still a bit 'murky' in that area and being unfamiliar with the workings of water wheels, I can't work out what is there. I should have researched water wheels before embarking on this project.

    I've identified the waterwheel - Lower Slaughter, Gloucestershire.

    Hi June Yes a clearer picture we knew the wheel run anti clockwise as the water level we can't see would be higher we can now see the the bypass gate is open so the water is bypassing the wheel wether the wheel is still working I think is would be
    not for grinding wheat for flour but to genarate Electricty for the farm plus a wood lathe or over gear ? as the drive shaft
    goes into the main house on the right and the dwarf wall on the left the bearing to balance the wheel it would interesting to
    see if they diverted the river when deciding to build the wheel mind boggleing Ciao IVAYA CON DIOS HOO ROO
