Use Australian Grey to Enhance that Old English Grey!

I introduced a new colour for the creamy walls of the cottages - Australian Grey.  It's a very light colour and just gives white a slightly creamy look.  Starting with the distant cottage, I then filled in the wood with Burnt Sienna, Scarlet and the Ultramarine.  Shadows on the wall and under the thatch was made with a mixture of the Australian Grey and purple.  The shadow is very dark on the right-hand side as it is surrounded by the garden.  Don't forget to darken the top of the wood struts to coincide with the shadow under the eaves.  I blocked the window in a dark Ultramarine and Scarlet and will fill in the white window frame when this is dry.
