Something different - certainly captures the cold North , big mountain feel.

I like it Jim. The only issue that I have would be the same grey and white used on the mountains as the foreground. It robs your piece of some of its depth. Aside from that, thumbs up!

I got fed up, with the usual single a/c, or two in combat, and moved on to narrative type pics. I much prefer an a/c being serviced or even scrapped. Eg the Spitfire in the shallows 'friendly fire' or the Avenger in the scrap yard, than the portrait type. However each to their own.
There are limitless situation you can depict, just takes a little thought.

Lovely painting - tranquil setting far from the 'madness' of civilization.
