I finally got this as ready as it can be. There is plenty of things I would like to fix, but still I am going to stop now. I am quite satisfied with result. Made with acrylics, on 24cm*19cm canvas board. I used a photo I took on my way to work as a reference.

Thanks for BrianWarner and Gilberte for their help with this.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

this is good but i feel it lacks a focal point. i know it's a landscape but i think perhaps a boat in the water (or something like that, i don't know, a swan etc) would improve this greatly. i like your brushwork though, very nice.

I agree, otherwise it's a great palette and your detail is good.

Thank you :) As usual as soon as I think its finished, somebody comes and points out something that could be improved. That is exactly what I need to improve my humble skills. I leave the painting for a while and get back to it when I feel that I am ready. I think that couple of ducks could be what it needs.

Edit: Do you have any suggestions where I should put those ducks/swan? I was thinking that near left shore and somewhat close to that dark area on below. That way it would not be too middle in the painting.

sorry, i know how annoying it is when you feel you've finished and you have absolutely no desire to put the brush on it again!

yeah i was thinking near the left shore. it looks unrealistic and idealistic when the focal point is right in the centre, so by the shore would be good.

No need to be sorry :D I get back to painting after couple days rest. Then I might have a fresh view to it.
