Let's hope the site is back to normal and our posts don't end up in another dimension!

Here's my latest, from a ref pic I found.

Beautiful! The water is so still it is like a mirror.

quite notable that an idyllic scene has so much energy , and with the solid colours .

Thanks for the comments! I really struggled with the right side. I just couldn't get the shadows to look right, but in the end I'm very happy with it.

The water is beautiful! The only thing that bothers me is that dark, very fast, line of the bank on the right. I think it needs breaking up a little. For example, you could extend the sunlit grass areas to the edge so you have a mix of sun and shadow along that line. You could even lose the edge a little towards the bottom of the painting.
I really like the loose yet effective treatment of the background trees!

Beautiful, I agree with Ruthie about the dark line.
