Oh yes, you have certainly achieved that feeling here. The sky is particularly effective where the glow just creeps over the edge of the fells. A lovely piece of work, Stevan.

Beautiful shapes to your trees with great textures in your painting Stevan.

Very atmospheric Stevan, absolutley love the contrasts and that hedge and fence line are striking, the whole thing is great you expect to see an owl quatering the field, nice one.
