    What a difference! Very nice, FP.

    Now that foreground bush technique I rather like for the variety of the marks. It's way more interesting.

    Thought that handling of the edge of the far ridge line against the sky both looks like trees as well as a wash of paint that seeped into the tooth of a heavily textured watercolor paper. Looks great. So it feels more consistent throughout the painting. Could see perhaps a little bit of that texture of the foreground bush being picked up somehow in the middle ground, something that shows the same sensibility, only at more a distance.

    I'm quite sure this could really serve you as it evolves as a technique. Considering all your brilliant photos of landscapes, this could be a great complement to that vision.

    Bravo!
