Great greens! Like the depth and looseness very much. IMHO the blue in the sky should either be continued into the top left or toned down. That intense corner is throwing it off a bit.

Wonderful clarity of colors and the castle is beautifully painted.

I was going to agree with Sarah and suggest cropping that blue part like that...

Having looked at it, though, I am no longer sure... That blue does play against the green...

Super job, Peter.

I tend to agree with Sarah about the sky.

I like the deep blue in the sky... It complements the luscious greens in the foregound... You could extend it to the left, but I would look at if for a few days before I did anything more with it...

I love the sky just the way it is - I also love your composition in this painting. There's alot of depth going on...

Looks great!

I like your style--and I think the blue sky lends excitement to the painting. Definitely a British "bright spot!"

very lovely, although I do agree with Char...right now, you have all of your most intense colors on the right, so it weighs the picture heavily in that direction... moving some intense blue onto the left will help it balance.
"Many had previously tried to prove the existence of God - or at any rate to bring him within the bounds of rationality. But if you content yourself with some such proof or logical argument, you suffer a loss of faith, and with it, a loss of religious passion. Because what matters is not whether Christianity is true, but whether it is true for you." Jostein Gaarder, Sophie's World Chapter: Kierkegaard
