Moving and Painting

Hey everyone, I'v been a bit busy and will be for another couple of days because I'm moving into a new place, Here is the view from my new bedroom.


Also I figured I'd get some feedback from you folk, I started a new hobby in my old age, can't do the things I used to anymore, so here is my first oil painting ever that I did a couple weeks back, what do my readers think?

1. Base and starting.

2. A little progress.

3. The finished painting.

I'm jealous, the view you have is beautiful. I would spend all my evenings enjoying the view.
I like the painting very much. I like the choice os colors and the fact that it's not so details is a good idea. I've seen paintings not as good as this one sell for pretty good money. Keep playing with the paint, especially if you enjoy it. It might turn out to be a second carear.
