Mike, this is a lovely painting, very delicate and with lots of atmosphere. I like the sharp edges here and there, interspersed with the soft areas. Colours used are very harmonious.

This is a superb atmospheric landscape, Mike very well done

Very attractive, and those tiny figures gives a great idea of the scale.

Ah, this must be one of the national parks in New Zealand, I reckon. The muted colours work so well for this kind of landscape, which reminds me so much of Snowdonia and the Lake District fells. Intriguing painting. Bri

Stunning painting with many contrasting areas, Mike, Love it!

Dramatic scene well captured, the mark on the nearer hill looks like an eye gazing on the walkers!

Great colours and composition Mike.

my thanks to everyone for their kind comments.
