No ... I Was Not Abducted by Aliens ...

I couldn't wait to finish this - I was so keen to get onto another painting. The colors are frustratingly off; I think I'll have to break down and buy Photoshop Elements to get the colors right. 

This version was getting too dark in the sky, and the shadow on the abutment  on its left side would not be there under a cloudy sky, so ...

I started again this morning, using cobalt blue, instead of indanthrone for the sky colors. I think, I HOPE, it will turn out better.

No aliens - just a few days of work at the office, catching up with Bruno time, and getting used to the big change in the weather. Summer has finally arrived! :)
