sigh
i recognize you by your cropping, lol, welcome back

love the messy green treetop, love the red/green play and the poofy clouds are marvellous
but [always there is a but]
the composition is pretty much horrendous
the tree, drags me into the centre
the horizon is, dead centre
the water ripples dominate, the centre
the friendly poof cloud even has a wee brightest spot, in centre
the beautiful red boat, wait for it, he's heading to dead centre
what is so almighty important about the centre

the fix is in the sky i think, if it's not dry yet spread that bottom left cloud/white all across the bottom of the top horizon, share that light, which Seems to be coming from the top right, with the whole horizon.
not sure of the water, are there little islands in the center or maybe cloud reflections? the light source can help clarify that too, let it help you, add light to anything sticking up in the water that faces the light source

hope that helps, you're brave and if you can get a good composition you'll get a really good painting out of the deal
