Eller Ghyll


Please can you give me your opinion on this painting of Ellar Ghyll in Menston.
It is from my own photograph and is painted with hard and soft pastel on Canson Mitente Touch paper.

I also think the sky colour is wrong.
I’m not sure if it can be rescued or whether I need to start again. ...more
