Excellent shadow light on the shrubs in the foreground. Your perspective is a little off on some of the roof's. Good color all over. Remember this, it's always lightest next to the dark and darkest next to the light. I say this because the tree on the left has no contrast next to the sky and lighter background. Sometimes it's good to have a value blur but this wouldn't happen for the full length of the tree. Do you agree? The different colors on the roofs is good ariel perspective.

Thanks for posting.

This small 4x6 inch painting was done on masonite and depicts a local church. I know I am too tight with the application of paint. Something I have struggled with in my watercolors.  Constructive criticism is welcomed.
