MY COMMENTS:
As most of my other pieces are this is mainly done with a palette knife.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
In its final stages. <br> Do the foreground shadows and/or base of stems need to be darker? <br> Should I darken two glass slopes in the middle on the green house? It seems just a smidge too bright. <br> Would the rose bush stem in the upper left benefit from more "gnarlyness"? It looks too smooth to me. Or maybe change it to more dark and light rather than the mid tone it is?<br><br> Other than that I don't see anything major wrong but would like some fresh eyes.

Painted with palette knife, that is impressive :thumbsup:
I think the shadow is fine coz the focus point is on the greenhouse, adding darker shadow in front row will take away the attention.

this is quite beautiful. From atmospheric color to the good comp. I cannot see that fiddling with the small matters you mention would add anything needed. Two things I notice but would not exactly say they are wrong' is that the fenceing and the foreground soil are the same color. perhaps the fence could be cooled down a bit with the addition of a dab of cobalt blue to the burnt sienna. That might also lessen the tendency of the fence to zoom' our eye through the painting. But it is really lovely as is.

CaKatt, as usual, beautiful. I agree with Corby about the cooling of the fence.
