I don't like the lighting, it's too grey.

Love the trees and little house down in the valley.

This looks like a lovely, peaceful place.
My favourite part is the foreground mountains.
Good!

Everything looks better by candlelight. Everything sounds more plausible on the shortwave.

Lake,

This is wonderful.

The amount of detail you choose works well in the distance, midground, and foreground.

There's a story here, I think.

What are those (biped) trees looking at?

And what sway do their two hooded masters (those mountains) have over them?

Are they going to attack that village?

This is my favourite of yours so far.

I agree with Mic. This is masterful work!

Thank you all for the comments. Very busy watching Olympics lately :D

Seth, you are a very detailed observer. There's anothe house half way in the mountain.

Delph, yes, I like the conceit and composition - the source drawing is from a famous artist.

Jane, your words " lovely, peaceful place" are what the characters suggested.

Nar, glad to see you back. Yes, I am practicing to draw looking from different angles, from near to far, from lower to up... That "biped trees" and "hooded mountains" comments made me laugh. I have to work hard.

Mic, thanks. My teacher didn't say much about it.

Marten, glad you think it is good. As my reply to Mic, my teacher only said we don't use that technique (traditional) to draw mountains nowadays.

Thank you all. Hope you all enjoy watching Olympics.
