Ahhhhh the background trees are about done! Standing back from my drawing board I really like what I see but I will still adjust them as I work on the rest of this.
As you can see I have put in the first wash of color on the roof, finished the chimney and made a start on the lattice of the gazebo and the arbor on the right. To finish the chimney I only put in a few bricks using a template. The viewer's eye will finish what I have left out.
