O'er the hills and vales- Oil on Canvas

This is a small oil done on canvas, copied from a card with a similar picture. The strokes are quite mature and smooth. She has yet to get used to the thick oil paints, as they are new to her. There were some trees which she apparently painted but removed . this is a point to note, as this indicates that she has understood the versatility of oils, as opposed to other media! I hadn't expected this...or maybe she has seen me doing this at times.... altering/ removing the entire backdrop from a painting and the learning was there in her subconcious.
All in all, not a very bad attempt. Colour mixing is quite good too.
