This painting of a Swiss landscape with the alps at the background and a cottage in the middle distance and a flower field in the background has got all the elements of a typical Swiss scenery.
The reference photo I used was taken in the year 2000 when we visited that beautiful country in the month of April. Here is the painting. The fence in the foreground somewhat obstructs the viewer's eye, so I may remove it if and when I redo this painting again sometime later!

I made another painting of the same subject, a little bigger, I used the best paper I have and the colors really shine. I like redoing the same subject over and over again, trying to perfect the design, composition and leaving out some errors in perspective, etc, if any. Have a look!
This painting was inspired by a photo taken by me when we were visiting Scotland last November, with our son Sricharan and his friend Aaron. It was a small village where the bus stopped for lunch with a few restaurants around. This is a photo of the painting, after it was edited for painting.
Here is the painting!
