A struggle as always but pretty much came together in the end. (11×14 Arches 140lb cold pressed)
I started with the right hand building and it never really came together. The left hand white building fared somewhat better partly because of the contrast between the white walls and the roof. The grass and foreground was put in very quickly using a squirrel mop and then roughly indicating the foreground fenceposts. I had no idea whether this was going to work but I think it came off without distracting from the central buildings.
