Hi, I'm new to digital matte painting and after a few tutorials I came up with this. Its been inspired by shots from the Lake District. I am very open to any comments to help me improve my skills.

Thanks

I like your painting skills.
The mid ground looks well done. The edge of the big hill in the left side is not so defined. The tip of the hill has a cut out feeling. To fix that you might want to add more detail to the edge. And those detail should catch some light and have more contrast. Overall the tip of the hill should be brighter than the bottom of it.

Thanks for the comments. Will definitely work on foreground elements in future.

Cheers.
