I think the row of background trees are a little too green...should be toned down more with a lavender? purple? to indicate more distance especially below the trees on the right. It's difficult to tell where they end and the background trees begin.

I always look for a pathway when I'm on location..I love the way they lead into the painting...very inviting. Your perspective is great with the trees and the path. Nice texture in the pathway too!

Could add a bit more warmth to the foreground tree.

Landscapes are my favorite subjects! Are you painting plein air? I've found that I can paint better from memory since I began painting on location...perhaps, it's because I have to take in the subject more while I'm there.

Thank you Dyin, Carly, Nina , Mo and Marilyn.
Carly, you are right about the atmospheric perspective and no I am not yet painting plein air.
