Keen observation, Mr Ploos. She musta pranced 'round to this side of the picture, dinna she then, eh? Cause you knows she's gotten ta somewhere 'ere abouts.

Ms Coops, this is absolutely brilliant. I love the rich colours, but especially love the lateral marks of the green, where the terrain is deftly described so economically. The ground really sits well in the overall space. Great depth and landscape forms.

There's a particular type of facility that comes from painting all the time, and from all the paintings you have done, you have it. You're in the zone.

Beautiful, Coops!

Nice and serene!

Nice, maybe add some atmospheric perspective. Lower the saturation of those colors as you approach the horizon. Also keep your values tighter as for objects in the distance. This will help with the illusion of depth :)
