Great job Joha! I love seeing the difference between my version and yours.

Fantastic mountains!

If you decide to add more mist I would suggest a glaze with zinc white with a touch of Prussian blue over the farthest mountain. It would push that mountain even further.
Lovely pine trees, but they somehow look identical even they are different. I cannot quite place it , but probably because of the angled brunches they look like twins of some sort.

Thanks Alex_Ander, Matt, always nice to compare with other works indeed and get some inspiration and ideas, and Sunnylady, thanks for the tip and I think it was the soft brush I used for the trees that these seems similar.

I was thinking about the pine trees and I guess i figured what is bothering me: even we know that pine trees are usually repetitive movements of the brush, there is kind of pattern in each tree with exact same angle, i guess even distance between limbs creates this feel. Each tree on its own is lovely, but they kinda ask for more variability in the trees' limbs and angles when there are few of them in the area. Not sure if that makes sense...

Every tree needs its own character, is that what you want to say Sunnylady? I will keep it in mind during next paintings!

Yes! Thanks for the summary of my mumbling! :)

Beautiful mountains as always!

This is really great! Love your mountains!

Thank you so much Sarah!
