Super picture Chris! The background is just beautiful and you’ve conveyed a great sense of distance. You’ve also done well with the detail on the ibex, especially the horns. Helen
Great image and looks like you've got some good details with the pastels.
But, yes the sky is quite dark. It brings the background too close. But I love that shadow on the left in the midground. It creates so much depth in the scene!
I like the composition and colour palette. Very nicely painted Chris.
The photo colour on the sky is way out - it's a much lighter blue
