This is copied from a photo I took at LongMynd Shropshire UK.
Do you think I need to do anymore to it.

Thank you very much Pat, it was fun learning which tools to use to get the right effect.

The glitter tool made doing the bushes and trees a doddle. I was doing each individual spot with the oil brush set to zero and I was getting wrist ache.:( I then decided to try the glitter tool with the multicolor switched off and at 2%, it worked a treat.

Unbelievable perfection! An apparent flawless copy!
Hard to say much more also because part of the details are a bit lost in such a small vertical scale.

Thank you Caesar, I did so enjoy doing that one, especially the sky it just blended so perfectly. The painting I am doing at the moment isn't going as smoothly, its a good job I can rub out and start again with no wastage:D

I think there is one big thing left to do with this painting. You need to print it out, frame it, and hang it prominently on a wall that get's plenty of traffic. ;):):):)

Terrific painting. Gorgeous.

Thank you Byron, Nika, I will be having it printed.

Church Stretton is a very photogenic place, it is a beautiful area. I have taken lots of photo's over the last 6 years of the changing light on the hills while doing an Archery competition in the Valley, so I will be painting a few more of the same hills.
