this is a lovely compositon and the color note of the house in sunlight is very exciting...I also like the simplicity of the foreground...a real homerun!
I love the shadows across the wall and the subtle lead- in lines in the foreground.
Love it--your palette is wonderful and it is absolutely charming. Great job!!!
So glad you are doing landscapes again.
I like how the narrow track looks like a sea shore on which a soft wave on the left is going imminently to break,carrying some red flowers that are floating on the surface...I feel here a high impression of movemement in contrast to the hieratic background.Just a simple narrow track,a discrete curved line...
I can feel the heat coming off those shutters, and I also love that shadow.
