chromaticodex-thankyou. yep your right about the colours. the pic had to have a springtime look to it so i used pinks in the trees, the original colours felt a little autumnal.
lav- hi matey, i like experimenting with colour, i never really know what i'm doing from the off it kinda develops through trial and error. to be honest that could be said of all aspects of my artwork!
steeliebob- hey mate, thanks for dropping in and posting.
