hey there. i read that youre planning on getting a digital camera. i think its a good idea for anyone at any skill level to have references. my suggestion would be to take picutres at a bird's eye or worm's eye view to get new ideas for compositions and framing. i see that the characters in your new painting are at a human eye level or a little above. what would they look like from different view points? maybe for another painting?
as for this painting- it has a real sense of space. i like how the mountains are fading in the background. lots of atmosphere!
