This was done in Sketchbook Pro. Started with a Monoprice tablet and finished on my new Wacom Intuos Pro. Starting to get the hang of this digital art.

Nice work.

Thanks. I only wish I had the skills to put a horse and buggy on the path somewhere. That would make it for me.

I like this scene ..you captured the stone wall well. reminds me of back home in New England.

Now that I said it, I have to try. So I have the horse, tonight the buggy.

And here it is with the cart :-) I may not be done with this yet. C&C welcome. Right now I think the foreground bird needs attention.

Look forward to more of your digital paintings, I am a landscape enthuisiast and digital at my age suits me best.

Thanks. I'm loving digital, I can do it anywhere and anytime. I have much to learn about it and I like that.

The horse and cart are a nice addition. The foreground tree needs a shadow and to be more settled into the grass.

So glad you got up the courage to add the horse and buggy, I was going to suggest you put them on another layer, in case you had a hard time, you could always erase, or resize them!
Nice job, I agree, you are DEFINITELY getting the hang of this digital painting!

I like the painting with the horse and buggy too :)

I totally agree about the shadow. Let's see if I fixed it.

That looks better.

Which way is the light coming from? That will give cues for all your shadows..
Some of the colors seem a bit off, could be the difference in screens tho...
grass looks a bit vivid, teal/turquoise vs grassy green?, the far trees could fade to more blueish for distance..
stone wall seems purple toned to me.. maybe some grays/blues?
big bird seems a bit too big...

I just bought the Intous Pro (Med) I keep disabling features, 'cause the old pad I had for 7 yrs Hanvon 6x8)died. It had no peripheral adjustments.
I just commented on a member's lack of Hard edges, you seem to have the opposite. Perhaps grass sprouting around the base of the tree- it will seem more "grounded.
