After a long gap PC and I were painting together again. This was done from one of the pictures that PC had taken while on his way to (or back from) his native. I decided to change the color of the thatched roof to a warm color. It was a dull gray in the picture and hence boring.

The harmonious existence of the concrete house and the thatched roof facade for the same made the picture quite interesting for me.

Prabal, I liked the tiled roof and the coconut trees done with negative painting.
What I liked most is the focus you have achieved by keeping the background more harmonious.

looks like the shade of blue (shadows under thatched roof) has dried brighter than you expected. It tends to distract at first sight

Nice one! Thatched roofs are always a dull grey.I too changed that to a warm color in my 'bullock cart'.
I like the backlit coconut trees! The foreground could have been better!

Fantastic and interesting post as usual. What a beautiful place it must be in person. You have shown it very well through your art! I like the coconut trees and yes as Ramesh said, foreground could have been better...:)

Ramesh and Megha, You are bang on. I had to be right the first time I put color and unfortunately I was not when I did the foreground. And instead of just leaving it like that (which would have been much better) I overdid it and that became worse. :(
