Once again, my favourite mountain, seen from the top during a walk in the snow last winter (from memory).

There are usually herds of sheep and an accasional donkey up there, but not in winter. There are horses on some other mountains. I don't know where they go during the cold.

I don't think this is finished, no more time though.

Some refs used for the horses. First versions had a giraffe instead. Maybe I'll add it with the horses.

Nice landscape ;-) and sorry for my horrible english. I speak spanish.

 Color use is spot-on as usual. Aaand... that's really enough for me. There are a couple of imperfections in the details, but the colors and how you use them really set the piece apart.

Thanks guys!

Because of the pressing demands, I've added a link to the giraffe version. Don't expect too much.

DB: the (almost) white ribbon is the river Rhône, which actually shines in the lete afternoon light from up there. The whole bg might be too confusedly bright, always that problem of judging values on them damn mac laptop monitors.

DW: you're right, that unreadable horse is unreadable.

Another great landscape

I 'd love to see a giraffe in this, I think it adds to the usage of "unusal" hill colors.

One thing I noticed is that the second horse from the left side is very hard to read at X1 zoom, The head+ neck and the torso + the right foreleg are hard to distinguish but maybe that's just my eyes again.

Oldschoolish style and lovely colors. Nice!

Ok, now all I can think about is giraffes!

The slightly abstract color use is interesting but it doesn't quite convey cold and snow, and the white at the horizon is a bit odd. But still; a nice scene.

Great colour usage.

Very nice scene, but I'm not getting a cold or wintery feeling.

 It's amazing how you made the whole piece without any white. :/
