Farmhouse - update II

Here's the next step.


I first made a very light wash with a light green, keeping gaps for the roof and sky shining through, and then added darks for the darker area and I paid attention to the direction for leading the eye to the house.
I have to add many more layers of light and dark greens and for the very dark parts kind of darker red but - miraclemiracle - I am pretty satisfied with the result.

Btw - the walls are not SUCH reddish as they appear here.
