Finally got this one finished! A fair bit of care was taken when working on the foreground trying to keep a balance between it and the distant mountain. The darkest tones are apparent here but I kept the contrast between these and the lighter green trees close so as not to draw the eye away from the mountain peaks. Other details were added here and there plus a small amount of tonal adjustment in a few areas. I'll probably have another go at this as I think I prefer a more widened landscape format giving more prominence to the mountains - should work well with this subject. Size of this one is 12" x 16" (30cm x 40cm). Oil on canvas.
