I painted this from a photo reference today. It is oil on 8 x 10 canvas panel. I am paying attention to hills...making sure I am deliberately implying distance. Well, you know you're goofing up if you put any of the same colors in the foreground as you have 15 miles away. Yep...I have a bit of that problem going on...but I can fix it.

I really like the way you described the trees and underbrush in this painting. It's a wonderful composition and the color combinations are great.
