I love this!! Makes me wish I was walking there right now :) I will have to look up the original painting, as I'm not familiar with it..

It's a bit more high key than the original but I still think it's lovely. However, the bright greens toward the rear seem to distract from the foreground trees but it's a very good rendition!

I like your painting, respect.I'm not good in landscape but I think that this piece is really good.

Very nice.

I would have to agree, you've done a great job of this.

Your tones are definitely brighter and more saturated whereas the original is more earthy and dulled.

But to be honest, I think they both look great, and they both have qualities of their own.

very good, it conveys the light superbly. btw, a caveat regarding comments of your version vs the original, (yours has more illumination/brightness but one would have to see the original, online photo reproductions can be off by several country miles vs the real original painting.

Beautiful trees....Makes me "pine" for home in East Texas. The light reflecting off the trees makes the painting look life a picture. Wonderful.

Nice work! I am glad we also got to see the original here so as to compare the two.

Beautiful painting! Nicely done!
Some suggestions: the shadow from the front trees: lighten it up more as it recedes (it would receive more reflected light); otherwise I'd have it hanging on my wall.
