while the road reaching center bottom is lyrical, it divides the paintng into halfs, so you might want to work that out in some other paintings, (i.e. don't repeat it unless it is essential for a series of illustrations - paintings are different than illustrations)
this one is so full of good stuff.

This is really good.

First painting or twentieth..........it's just, really good.

And I believe that all artists are self taught to a greater extent.

My suggestion to you is to paint, paint, paint. Enjoy!

This is just an idea, so don't change it because I brought it up, how about a tad bit more color? Just a thought. I'm self taught too. So I'm far from an expert! For your first one it rocks!

oh gosh, the color is great the way it is. It really conveys the area (the wheat) and the sun beating down where there are no trees..... the dust too. Hehehehehe.... You got it! I'm with Jerry regarding the path, but that's not such a biggie. This is really a good piece, and yep... you should do more. Here's to making eyes happy. :D
