Nice sharp features to those ridge lines. Great graphic color. The sharp white to purple edge at the top is a little confusing to the eye though. But overall those mountains er. . . rock!

Love the detail in the light on the foreground ranges, and the way you've got them receding creates a wonderful sense of depth. :):)

Thank you, Caesar, Alexandra, D Akey & Juz. I totally enjoyed making this. Re the stark horizontal line, the intention was to recreate the view of looking down on a sea of clouds that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Not sure if it worked but welcome suggestions on how to improve. (Perhaps it could be variegated a little for authenticity?) I am not too serious an artist yet as you can tell, still have much to learn on how to use many of the AR tools. Maybe I should spread work on a painting over several days and utilize chunks of time as opportunities arise. The trouble with AR is, once I start, I want to keep going till its "finished" but the finishing line can be hard to reach (sorry about the awful pun) :rolleyes:

Sky above and clouds below I presume. Simplified is how it should be! Simplified is best.

Woops! neglected to say a couple of thank yous!
(I have found a whole stack of similar from early on that are the same, also amazed that it has been two years since first discovering AR)

mannafig I tried to keep the colours as close to the ref as I could

and jibes, yes you are correct sky above, and clouds below...

Beautiful. I like the stark and crispy feel.
