Cottage by shmemcat Cottage by shmemcat
*Phew* This took quite a while! Almost a week! I'm extremely happy I've finally finished it :)

I've heavily referenced and original work by Anthony Casay. I'm not sure what the title is, but it's marvelous. All his work is!

I'm really pleased with the learning that I've done with painting! And I do quite love this little cottage painting, lopsided bridge and all ♥

Painting with acrylics on 16x20 inch canvas. 17 hours (oh boy isn't that sad)

Enjoy :meow:

Its so cute! It reminds me of a Magritte painting where it is daytime in the sky but night-time in the ground. :)
