Hi everyone,this is my first attempt at painting any landscape.It is acrylics on canvas paper 9x12.I tried posting it in the OCF...but the image wouldn't upload...so i thought i would try the WIP forum.I also posted in the landscape forum yesterday.

This Picture is from the RIL


Here is my painting


I had some difficulty with the stream.All C&C are welcome.Thanks:)

I like the colours but 2 things instantly struck me,
1, The river seems to beat an angle leaning downhill with the slope
2,Branches too thick they over power the leaves

Keep posting the WIP 's :)

Hello Luv4art

This is a good effort - but you need to sort out your perspective on the stream which "tips" and appears to go downhill rather steeply. Also, if you were trying to replicate the photo fairly closely- look at the background green which needs more brightness (more yellow in it) and looks too much on a slope. The shadow angle you have painted accentuates this (too steep).

These are crits to help you get your picture to "look" right - I will leave it to others to comment on colours, tone etc.
