I enjoy the medium in which you are working in. Watercolor paints and pencil sketch have a certain classical quality to it that never disappoints in bringing enjoyment. It does feel unfinished, which is hard to give you an in-depth and objective critic, however, with the work provided you demonstrated a very good example of two-point perspective. The colors applied appear to have a characteristic of Impressionism to them. The blues offer the viewer a suggestion of the sky, yet offer a cloudy, storm-like appearance at the same time.
On a negative aspect the color for the trees and other areas of the work are overpower by the blue and perhaps more color could have been applied to illustrate the other details of the work. Some shadowing with varied line strengths could have been utilized to add to the 3D effect started by the two-point perspective. Your horizon line could be softened with additional layers of color or line variation so not to result in such a stark contrast.
It seems to me from viewing your other works that you are developing a certain Impressionist style with the medium that you are working in which is fantastic. Perhaps I have overlooked your overall intention in developing your work, but this is the effect I have come to understand. I would be curious to see the source material in which you start with for your landscapes. Overall a wonderful piece; the difficulty in working with watercolors is overcome by unrelenting practice and I applaud your discipline in achieving that goal. I have always had difficulty working in this medium which always results in frustration for me. I believe you have set yourself on a firm foundation to attain success in this medium.

I have to say, you really nailed the sense of loneliness and isolation.:nod: The building looks cool, but it looks like a castle more than a mansion. Mansions look less defensive and more onerous to reflect the fact that they are pleasure and status. Good work overall.:nod:

It was a specific request of the commissioner to add that towers on top of the mansion but you have a good point indeed.

It does look like a mansion to me. Too many windows and too low and undefendable for a castle, which after all is a military thing. I'm very curious, did your client explain what those tower/turret things on top are that they asked for? Thanks! -- 6oT P.S I love line'n'wash work and wish I was better at it; favorited.
