As I worked them up, it was obvious that the roofing on the house was too bright, as was the green of the house, so I went about dulling these down in order to give a more overall tonal similarity. This helps the viewer see the whole composition and abstract aspect of it, rather than just seeing a picture of a house.
You can see that I did choose to indicate the curtains and venetian blinds, which I thought might tell something about the house, or maybe add some mystery, as well as just being abstract elements in their own right. I left the Cabbage Tree pretty much as it was, as I didn't want it to distract from the composition as a whole.
I have to say, I like the darker tonality, which gives the scene a mood, and the similarity of foreground and background gives it that aperspectival quality( if the viewer opens their eyes to this aspect).
