Some Tight and Loose Strokes

One thing that always makes me happy when working on a painting is taping up the sloppy first-layer edges on straight lines and making them razor-sharp. I was able to get to a few of those today (see: lower roof line on overhang and a couple of the posts on the left, and the white trim below the main window on left), and also brush in some dappled areas on the foreground.

By the way, I found out why that little window on the right (at the top of the building)  is so oddly different from the other two! The entire building is much larger than what is pictured here; this is just half of the actual building. There's a wine shop on the right side, and it's the mirror image of what you see here. It has a small window on the upper left, and two taller windows on the right.
