the colors are working well
the left quater loses the interest generated in the rest of the picture
because there is not as much going on
the dark brown in the house in the upper mid/left could be repated down in the lower right
that would make the right heavier, so it shouldn't be the whole ground area, perhaps the upper half, leving some light along the edge
you can test by holding something dark in that area to see if you don't get more excitment out of the dark light pattern of the picture as a whole

Merely a student of life!:)

'The artist is no more than a receptacle for sensations, a brain, a recording apparatus. But if it interferes, if it dares, feeble apparatus that it is, to deliberately intervene in what it should be translating, its own pettiness gets into the picture. The work becomes inferior.... Paul Cezanne...

Very well done, Rosanna. I like the tree on the right and also the way you have depicted the house - very casual. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Overall, the colors match well.
