Oooh Julie this is gorgous. Love the colour. It's funny, most places in UK have a 'Bluebell Woods' close by. We have one just at the end of our street.

Georgeous sky--I love the that the real sky played a part in your painting, adding rain. Also funny that you're calling them "muddtint" pencils. I tried using the Inktense versions, which were just the opposite, and hard to use--colors not found in nature. I love the way things are named in the U.K. Bluebell Woods sounds so charming.

So very English in feel, these are my forebears coming out obviously, so different to our Australian scenes, I love the waterery looking sky.

This is wonderful Julie, it takes me right back to those walks I did in England. There's a special feel about the skies and expanse of green that you've captured so well here.
