Original Acrylic Painting – Odd Cottages

Odd Cottages


I painted this a while ago; it was a quick experiment using only two colours. It turned out rather strange though, as the end wall seems to belong to both cottages. Can you see it?

The light is a reflection from the glass the painting is under. It seems to be in the right spot for a light so I left it at that.

About caroleparkes

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.

    I love this painting the light in the middle draws you in and it feels as though there is a story behind it.

    Beautifully serene.


  4. I think it’s a lovely painting. It depends where you look at the left hand house. If you look at the roof yes, it looks shared. If you look at the front wall however, it doesn’t as they don’t share the same lines unlike the gable angle with the roof.

      Thank you for your valued input. Perhaps it’s just my eyes, and the way I see things. I have to wear prism glasses to help my eyes focus, but when wearing them for computer work, I see everything in really vivid 3D. It can be quite funny but when you really want to see something as it truly is, it’s offputting.

    I like it. There’s story and poetry in your scene, along with what you might consider “imperfections.” None of us see it that way though!

    I really like the way the tree looks against the sky in this picture. And what a happy coincidence with the light reflection 🙂
