I had a really hard time with this one so I would really appreciate some feedback. I think I did about 4 or 5 paintings from scratch and none of them worked. I think this one works but I have lost all prespective so again, any thoughts. What works, doesn't work etc. Thanks for taking the time to look and letting me know what you think

Very believable, though I agree the background river is weak and could be narrower.

Nice scene and painting, more tonal contrasts possibly from middle to rear?

Beautiful scene!

Maybe consider cropping some of the bottom like this.

You could also try pushing the river at the back more to the right to get more of a snake element in the composition.

Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.I think I'm going to let it sit and get it out of my mind for a while and then take some advise. Thanks again!
