Thank you Magen, MSIE and semds for your kind comments.
This has been the most difficult to do on the ipad but it was a good learning curve. The small rocks around the borders of the pond I couldn't get right they were two flat, it took a while but found if I used the oil on full with no thinners and then dabbed the paint, it gave me the relief I wanted. I then slightly smoothed the surface with the palette knife set to wet.

Like the super realism inside a computer game. A paradox of stillness, yet so alive and brooding that something might suddenly step out and fire at you any second

Wow, that's... Stunning - especially for something done on an iPad (fingerpainting or stylus?).

I think I've been to that castle - it was quite beautiful if it's the one I'm thinking of (long time ago).
