Wadebridge - Cornwall: A painting of two halves?

Wadebridge_cornwall

Wadebridge, England, 15" x 11".

Wadebridge in Cornwall, England.  Perhaps a tricky composition with the road sign and tree almost splitting the picture making two separate elements.  So I thought maybe the shadow from the tree will help connect the two halves.  The road signs were the last things I did on this painting - I had painted around them, then at the end just put in a light wash of whatever was left in my palette.  White writing on the sign was done with white gouache.
