This is 20"x30", oil on canvas. I'm not thrilled with the color, I think it's a bit too sweet. I will probably do another and "grey" it down some. Thanks for looking. C&C welcomed.

Proudhawk, I think it is a good painting. I like the composition and the water. Color is nice and clean. REally, I like it all.
You say that C&C are welcomed, so my suggestion would be to lighten the background Mt. It seems that each shape is independent unto itself (( you can tell I'm not too good at this critique thing!!)), so maybe blur some edges? Soften some edges? Just here and there. I don't think it reads as 'sweet'. Nice job.
