Painting in the village

This turned out to be a three-day work, with more reflective and 'tweaking' time, checking tonal values and touching up details. It is 22"x17.5" on Fabriano Artistico hot press (heavy, I think 480gms) unstretched paper.

It came together much faster than I expected, but I didn't let myself get tied up in the details on the buildings. As it is I think it has a slight fairy-tale quality to it.
