So... I guess the english should take care now?
Not a sight you wanna see if you're a english peasant 'taming the land' the soldiers cleared for you...

I really like how you broke up the figures with the range of tonality.

It does work well, but it is also such a cheap trick, up there with foreground silhouettes, I love all the cheap tricks:)

I love the lighting in this and how it seems relatively transparent. It adds a ghostly feel, which is a perfect effect for the scene itself. Excellent work!

makes it easy for the clear cutting for the layout of the book. And it is really good to try and use the full range of contrast in a painting to get the most out of it.
