The Old Mill

Tom0779 11 Jun 2020

This one was a real challenge. It is maybe more complex than the covered bridge S19E7. It was painted with acrylics on tiny square (20 x 20 cm) canvas panel. I faced a lot of issues with the wheel which I still think is not the best one. I painted 4 hours to finish it which is really long for this tiny format. I hope it looks somehow right?



I do not know a thing about mills. But painting looks great!
I am impressed how long it took, you did great job Tom!

Thank you Sunnylady. My knowledge about mills isn’t big either. I just like this challenge. There is a second one in season 17. I will give this a try too.

Thanks anothermohammad

I think this episode is difficult.
I like the calm colors you use.
It's a wonderful work that I can feel the texture of wood if I touch it.

Thank you Jin. Yes this one is quite a challenge. But if one likes buildings it is definitely worth a try.

Yeah sometimes his cabins are a little too simple

You did a great job on the buildings and scene. I also think the water coming off the wheel is particularly effective - especially for acrylics. Nicely done!

Thank you leaderbug, I have done some minor corrections on the wheel later on.
