Cottage by the Sea in acrylics

I have had this one printed out for ages to paint and decided to paint it today.  Changed it a bit to the reference photo by adding the flowers down the right hand side of the road.  I am rather pleased how it turned out in the end.  I actually prefer painting with acrylics on paper compared to gessobord / canvas - the paint seems to behave differently on paper.

Cottage by the Sea measures 7 x 5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.

Many thanks to Nicola B for the reference photo.
