This painting is based on an image in the RIL; thanks to the contributor. I wanted to try 2 custom brushes made by other digital artists; impressionist leaf & Real scumble. The painting is done with Corel Painter 12; mainly acrylic and oil brushes and the 2 custom brushes. I posted this in Landscape and then made a few changes. All comments and advice are welcome. Thanks.

I really like the softness of the house,but for my personal taste the painting lacks some impact. I would have liked more contasts /light and shade in the foreground bushes, the picture as a whole looks very flat to me.
I also find the dark blue left top corner very distracting. The fact that it is a digital painting means these things can be adjusted without further painting if the desire was there.
I hope I don't offend you by adding an example of what I mean. Only layer modes and level adjustments added no overpainting.
My comments only reflect my own personal tastes and are in no way given to offend
regards Rob

I do love the softness of the house and back ground. I do think I would like to see a bit more contrast in the foreground though. But great stuff.
