Here's my newest that I've been working on. Will have to leave it sit for a while and come back late for minor adjustments. It's 14" x 18" hardboard done in acrylics. As usual, C+C welcome. Thanks for looking.

I absolutely love it! The trees and plants are fantastic, the colours are gorgeous, the water looks amazing, and the geese just give it that extra little bit of life.

Excellent work! I particularly like the added touch of the geese.

This is nice. I find the foreground rock on the left blends a little into the water. But over all a very nice painting.

Thanks everyone for the comments. As I'm trying to make the paintings more of the animal being part of the picture instead of the picture being the animal. Quite an experience to say the least. Ian, you're right, something needs to be done with rock. I've thought that since thed light is from the upper right corner maybe having it cast a shadow on the rock to make it darker? Or maybe removing the rock, or make the water darker? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again, many thanks.

I think the easiest way is to warm the rock with earth tones and cool the water with light blues would help.
