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.
