And you’ve succeeded Katy! Really excellent representation and great tonal values and handling of all those greens!

Thank you Alan, your comments are very encouraging😊

Love the recession you've achieved here, Katy

What a beauty, Katy. Super painting!

Love the way this leads the eye through the landscape

Love this Katy, especially your skill in using different mediums for the beautiful markings.

Lovely lively sketchy feel

What a cracker Katy.....very skilfully done, especially the greens .

Like this a lot Katy, the lossless is excellent and gives it a wild look.

Thank you Thalia, Mia, Hilary, Carole, Dennis, Fiona and Paul for your kind comments, much appreciated.

Yes really nice Katy, agree with every body.

This is gorgeous Katy, love everything about it
