MY COMMENTS:
a little painting I did in my car on a rainy day

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
It was a dreary, rainy day so I wonder if the light works. Is the little hemlock tree in the foreground defined enough? Comments/critiques, anything.

I think the hemlock is fiine. Like the feel of this.

Good job, very nice.

Nicely done! Maybe a bit more detail in the grasses in the very front. I love birch trees!
I think the light is good and I like the way my eye is led through the painting.

Yes the light works, with its low contrast of values typical of a raining day.
I would make the mid/foreground tree more brilliant and light, to create a focal point and to increase the impression of depth. Being more evident, it will advance.
