I worked on some of the background buildings today. As I was painting it I noticed how most of the building were leaning this way and that. Seems over the centuries most of the foundations have settled and it is now quite rare to see anything perfectly straight. The little guard house to the left of the bridge is really leaning over to the left, almost to the point of falling over. All of which makes it easier to paint, one doesn’t have to spent so much time making sure all the lines are vertical, in this case it’s perfectly fine to be off with your perspective!

We have skiing this afternoon up at Mountain Dell again, and to add to the fun, the temperatures have plummeted. Tonight it might be below zero, that’s negative 18 Celsius for those in Europe. So looks like everyone will be putting on a few extra layers to keep warm.
