Very cool Elizabeth. The only thing I can see would be to darken the colouring (keep it soft) of the mountains/trees in the distance. They would show more as a silhouette with the sun behind. Good sense of depth.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lovely work Elizabeth, I agree with Val on darkening up the tree-line and throwing them into shadow, especially where they meet the land. Keep going with the pastels, you are doing a great job  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Cheers
