Beautiful and skillfully done...well detailed, contrasted colors and I like the contrast of city and hillscape too. A "different" look to this painting.

Thanks very much, when you say a different look, do you mean my style? . I am trying to produce more flowing paintings, a bit more impressionistic maybe. Hee hee " I struggle on " Thanks for the nice comment . E.

I love the picture overall, and think it was really smart to include the red phone booth. It captures my attention and then my eyes wander over the rest of the painting.

I compared this to Mont St Michel and St Malo and I thought this piece had greater contrast and much more details of buildings/castle/street things....required a lot of energy and steady hands from you.

Eric,

I LOVE this! My favourite painting of yours, it's so engaging and frankly makes me want to move to Edinburgh :) Fantastic detail and the palette is just right, great work.
