I think I should probably go back and add some definition to the grass and maybe the water.

anything is fine

Some more definition might be good, but I like the feel of this as is. Nice light in the backbround, and a strange feel to it.

Good one.

Putting this in gray mode shows that you might consider enhancing the lights and darks to put more depth into your piece. You have a great start.

i wouldn't necessarily work the grass more, but it's hard to tell the water from the grass, maybe more twinkle on the water, making sure it stays really flat if you want to keep the soft peaceful feel ... it's quite misty and soft like a very early morning

It's nice. I agree it could use more definition.

The two main trees feel unnatural due to their precise placement framing the water and near identical size.

noneuclidean, I like your style, and you are sure improving yourself by each painting. This painting is beautiful but not perfect for me. But ı am sure you are on the right way and will become a great painter.

Thanks so much for critiquing this everyone. I am so glad that a site like this exists. I've learned so much. People are so willing to help on here. It really means a lot to me that someone has seen an improvement in my work other than someone I personally know and could have a bias because of that.

I like the atmosphere. A bit spooky. There is not enough detail to make identifications. I did not realize at first that what I thought was a road was in fact water. I saw this ghostly wagon and team (as in Dracula) hurling itself into view around that corner! So perhaps some further identifying information would cinch the tale! Nice atmospheric piece!
