In one word. Beautiful!

You certainly are mastering these wet in wet techniques, I think I should come to you for a lesson, this is one area I struggle with.

I really enjoy that glow on the left, the depth of the painting, is magical, and I love the addition of the splatter. Those mountains make it personal. As I said the painting is just beautiful!!

A beautiful shimmering achieved.

Not sure if the clumps of leaves in the trees works, though. Might have been a bit subtler with that-- maybe smaller, more random, overall scattering of them among the branches.

Hi Matt,welcome and nice to see you over here in O/C. You'll get great advice here from some super nice people.

I really like the looseness you have achieved in your mountains and the water reflects those colors really well. I kind of agree with Allan on the placement of the leaves and personally would like a little deeper color on one of the trees on the left, but you know me I love color.

Keep having fun..............Lenore

I guess i can't feel the randomness of the birch trees..all spaced equadisdant..all in a straight line ...and all summarily cropped off at the top of the canvas.The foreground tree is so much superior in workmanship in comparison to the others.
