It's super Diana! I'm sure they will be delighted with it! Those shadows really work well crawling up the wall, the feeling of light and cool shade is palpable in it.

Wonderful painting, Diana, superb light and shadows, great result.

And you've got that "Yorkshire colour" just right!

Thank you Thalia. I didn’t want it too detailed and I enjoy s challenge. Thank you Cesare. I was trying to look at areas of colour shapes. Thank you Marjorie. North Yorkshire is so beautiful

Beautiful Diana. Full of light and life. Unmistakably Yorkshire.

I like this very much Diana. I spend a lot of time in landscape like this and you have captured it beautifully.

That's very nicely done Diana. Real Bronte land feel to it. Nice work.

Very good Diana, love those dark shadows.

Very striking Diana, especially for someone not keen on landscapes!! Love those greens.

The light is superb and great composition. Fantastic work.

Well, I love to paint shadow and light. This is right down my alley. Terrific Scene! It always amazes me when I see skill at this level, that the artist could have trepidation. We're never completely satisfied, are we?!

Brilliant as always Diana

The tonal values are simply wonderful, great work Diana.

Thank you very much Carole. That a compliment for you to see Yorkshire characteristics. Thank you Elaine. That’s a compliment from a landscape artist. Hello Jim and thanks. It was just a case of simplifying all the mass of entangled branches Thank you Stephen. My teacher uses a lot of perylene green for natural foliage shadows. Thank you Tessa. I love other artists landscapes so hopefully build up confidence. My tutor wants me to do the same with boats, water and buildings. Thank you Mike. The composition is all the work of the photographer Thank you Skylar. I love strong shadows too but very little confidence in subjects that are out of my comfort zone. Thanks for the boost. Thank you very much Russell. Much appreciated. Thank you so much Alan. I know it’s overworked in many places but looks ok from a distance. One thing I am improving is tonal variation.

Love the style and the colours, Diana

Truly beautiful and skilfully painted Diana.

Beautifully painted Diana - lovely!

Hang on Studio Wall

The words commission and landscape fill me with dread and throw in a few shadows to make it more difficult. I offered to have a try and as it turns out am not too embarrassed at the outcome. Half imperial watercolour.
