'Looks like Rain Boss,' the youngster piped up, glancing at his master. 'Aye lad,' intoned the older man, 'best get washin' in.' Even wizards' have to do their washing! Yes it is dark, it was an overcast day and the view of England at the end of summer reveals the dark leaves of the trees waiting for autumn, the light green of spring and summer long since passed.

Amazing landscape. And I love the line of clothes drying too (I used the same idea in my "Crazy Wizard Castle", before seing yours).

1 Dave Cripps replies: "Id like to think that the landscape is amazing because it is real. But then unreal landscapes can be just as good. And washing lines on towers must be a good idea since the drying time must be quicker. Unless it rains..."

The washing line is so original! It's funny how people so often forget that wizards also need to hang out their washing once in a while 10
LOL yep.
The colours are great - I like the red tree in the middle of all the others. Your landscapes and scenery are really really good! ^^ I like them all!

Great picture! I like the various colors you used for the trees, and of course the view of the laundry atop the tower brings a smile. Good spot for catching a breeze, that's for certain!

45 Dave Cripps replies: "That's why wizards get paid the big money 'cos they're brainy. LOL!"

woah! this is a really great painting!! i love it- doesn’t the wizard have a little witch to take care of them i highly doubt that youngster will fold it right! hehe well done! 1

45 Dave Cripps replies: "LOL you mean a With house-keeper? LOL perhaps some one should mention it to him. Well at least the youngster has spotted the rain. All that book learning paid off!"

Is amused! 18 Such a lovely landscape, but where are the red longjohns, would make an amusing flag!

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "I think the wizard was wearing them on that day. Bit cold you see 12"
