Willy Lott's Children

Click Image to see larger version in my gallery

14 x 21 in  -  35 x 53 cm     Watercolor     Willy Lott's Cottage is famous for being the building in Constable's painting 'The Haywain'. It is still clearly recognisable today after nearly 200 years.

The ref photo that I took a couple of years ago caught two children in the lower left. In the ref shown here I have photoshopped them to move them nearer the cottage. The children are of course, how the painting comes by its title.

I am pleased with this. However there are a few weaknesses. The main one is that I intended to go back and do a better shadow on the tree in front of the building.
