French Village Oil Painting Step 2 by Chris Hobel

Cool Lavendar shadows on the buildings,and more warm highlights are added on the rooftops. 
The front trees are painted in the warm pastels of the walls keeping to the blue/orange complementary palette

French Village Oil Painting Step 1 by Chris Hobel

I decided to use a blue/orange palette for this complex maze of buildings perched on a rocky hill
Admittedly I did get lost and had to make a few architectural changes so as not to defy gravity.
On such a small canvas it would have been wiser to pick a more closeup view
 Gum turps and flat bristle brushes were used with  a limited palette of Archival Oils, 

Ultramarine Blue,Cad Red, Yellow,Orange , Crimson,Fast drying White make  a range of warm and cool greys and warm highlights coming mainly from the top left.
