A second layer of paint to define the shapes and colors. These houses remind me of the little wooden houses people collect and set on shelves.
I finally arrived at the idea, brilliant, of making the sky blue. It had been a yellow/green at first, then a pinkish like the road. But the blue I think works to catch the blue of the house and pond. I also glazed the entire painting with some light brown color I mixed up. To try to give unity.That was before I did the sky blue though, so will glaze the sky too when it dries. I think this one is nearing completion.
