Thanks for looking.

Hi Randy,
You have a great painting in the making here. What are you thinking of doing? I notice you haven't asked for C&C.

Oh, I just noticed your tag line at the bottom.
I'm not a landscape artist, but maybe some touches of brighter sunlight on foreground hills (maybe even background, where it peeks through the clouds)?

I started working on this again and quickly realized that I was just starting to mess it up so I stopped at a few spots of light on the distant mountain.

I might try a larger version where it would be easier to try a different approach. We'll see...

Thanks again to everyone for your comments and suggestions!

Love this Randy. Think the addition of the few spots of light has really turned your painting from good to wow. Clouds are wicked. :)
