As I was scrolling down I saw the top of the "now" version and thought it was your reference photograph! Everything looks so much more clear and solid and the two figures have that little bit of extra importance--this is a big improvement.

Honestly, I thought the first version was great and didn't personally see a pressing need to change it--but the suggestions others gave you definitely worked. I'll bet your customers will be thrilled. :)

I love how he watches her (as though silently asleep) watching the world. Just beautiful, Linda. The grass is breathtaking! I can smell the wild of flowers; such a beautifully intimate spot to remember a life as one begun. I just love your figurative work -- it's so inspiring to me.

Well done!!! :wave: :D

Oh Linda, Bravo a super finish. :clap: You did a great job adjusting the woman. They will be thrilled.!!!
Like the yellow you added to the grass great touch.
Although they are far apart, you can feel their closeness as they marvel at their beautiful sourroundings....Tres Tres romantic et Jolie!

BTW...The colours in they sky, water and mountain bacground seem different from the original painting picture. I am presuming that is just the digi photo quality.

Thank you all so much for your encouragement. :clap:

Yes, I am happier now with it. The recent revised painting has the most accurate colours. Made sure by putting the painting next to the computer.

You're all so great ! :wave:

Absolutely gorgeous! She seems not so small and far away now. He seems content to let her go, but anxious for her return. Well done, Linda!! They'll LOVE it. :D

I think you have improved this painting very considerably - among other things, the woman's eye-level is now at the horizon line, which means that the perspective and viewpoint make a great deal more sense than they did previously. The addition of yellow ground-cover in the foreground also enhances the aerial perspective, and the redrafting of the fence is also an improvement.

To answer your question, I think it is SERIOUSLY better!

There is a pth that takes my eye into the setting...there is a place for my eye to rest ....and my eye loves the value clarification you did

LOVELY work!
