    Super work - Not familiar with the source, but this stands on its own.

    Very picturesque, like cards as you mentioned in your last one as well. It's a gentle vignette feel owing to it feeling like I needn't look left or right to see more. And you've got soft, idyllic, iconic imagery. You painted it and staged it very well indeed. Bravo! You're on a roll.

    Yes, I saw this book on Amazon. Nice colour work. Although the original image shows a bit more depth in colour values. I think it could be a bit post processed with gray layer set to color burn mode.

    Many thanks to Skylar, D Akey, Byroncallas, gxhpainter, Strandy and coops for your kind messages.

    Strandy, I agree that the original artist has used lighter and darker shades of the grey-scale with his black conte stick but had I have wanted my painting to look that dark, then I would have painted it so.

    Furthermore, as a relative newcomer to ArtRage, the term 'post processing with gray layer set to colour burn mode' means very little to me.

    No problem Tony. Sorry for the term, I used. After I reread it, I agree, it shouldn't sound so cryptic. I referred to a very good tutorial from Juz about darkening / lighting certain areas in the image without changes to overal level of contrast / brightness. You will find it here:
