    Had fun trying this today, but I did get a bit lost for a while with the cliffs. I kind of got it together on the right hand side but it fell apart towards the left, and I somehow lost the separation between the cliff and the little hillock in the foreground- they look attached.like a scree slope. I decided it was best not to mess with it any more cus’ I was fighting a loosing battle there.

    Nice painting Pete. You have dealt with the rock well. A nice mixture of hard and soft edges makes them look convincing. You’ve remained truer to the photo than I have, and its worked out well for you. The castle is nicely drawn and to scale. Good values throughout your painting.  I like the way you have suggested a few grasses bottom right, nice touch.

    I am pleased you enjoyed painting this one. I think its a worthwhile exercise with lots to be gained in giving it ago.

    Very nice and i like the rocks, maybe i would have switched the left rocks with the right as the sin is shining in that direction based on the castle.  But overall you have achieved a lovely painting.

    Take time to look and make sure you see.

    I think this is just beautiful, Pete! I love the loose style and the colors. The buildings are excellent and I do see the hillock as being separated from the cliff. You’ve done a marvelous job with this scene. It’s so great to see such a variety in everyone’s version of this. I have no idea how mine will turn out. Great job! 😀

    Love this! I haven’t had the time nor courage to try it! Think I love the flowers and grass in the foreground the most although the whole thing is pretty majestic. Think you captured it well!
