Not sure what to make of the horizontal lines in the field/marsh this side of the water.

The play of light and shadow in the foreground is fantastic!

Good job on the light and shadows. Also on the little blue flowers.

Is the marsh/field a marsh or a field? To me, it looks a bit like it is going up hill (fine for a field). I could be totally wrong on this, but would it help if you put a little more detail in the front of the field and a little less in the back or would that mess up what you've got going with the darker green grass by the path?

The upper tree seems too dark, almost harsh , some reflected light maybe?
The sky hole seems too greenish.
The field feels too much the same , vary the tones? The color just grabs the eye and makes it hard to take in the rest of the scene..
The water? could be closer to some of the sky tones? It isn't reading clearly as water to me..other than the boats?
Maybe lighten/blue the far trees to show distance a bit more??

I love your choice of colours (although that yellow grass is a bit hard to believe) - this painting has a beautiful mood and fresh air feel. :clap:

Ugh, have to get up early while the light is better to get a better photo. This is much closer to the actual painting. The dark horizontal lines are just part of what you see in a marsh.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/23-Sep-2016/1986439-image.jpeg
