And I would appreciate your feedback.

Very interesting composition. It reminds me of "The Good Earth" for some reason. Keep posting updates as you work.

Looks like a great start! I think the mountain line following the same downward curve to the right as her head is bothering me. I like the furrows in the ground relating to the folds or stripes on her scarf tho!

That mountain line bothers me too! I also like the relationship between fields and scarf - that's good!
Head's good too - nice comp ..... except for those mountains :lol:
At the moment they're too dark and intrusive and because of the lines of the fields I'd suggest you consider the back of those to be the horizon line - raised earth above the real eye level/horizon.
I think you also need to ensure the head line and fields line do not coincide too closely! :)

Great, thanks - I never noticed the mountain line's relationship (change blindness?), and will adjust it, and then try brightening them or simply painting them out.
