Here is a painting I did about a month ago. I am pretty satisfied with it but would appreciate any critiques or comments. I am fairly new to painting so any input helps.

Hi Jane,
I have just been looking at the work of Tula Telfair and opened your post to find a striking similarity - mainly due to the subject matter. You have done a superb job here, the sky and clouds are wonderful. The only suggestion I have is to change the format so that there is more emphasis on the sky, especially considering the marvelous job you have done on it. Have a look at Tula's work and you will see what I mean.
Very well done. :clap:

I'm a big fan of landscapes and really like this... I only wish it was larger and higher resolution so I could relly enjoy it. The clouds and general atmosphere are great!

This is just beautiful. For someone who hasn't been painting very long, it just isn't fair! People spend their whole lives trying to achieve something as good as this.

I would love to see more of your work.
