Very nice, love the colors and style! The sky and water are great :thumbsup: The color of two white rocks in the foreground doesn't seem to play well with the rest of the palette in the painting.

Beautiful impressionistic style painting.

Another nice one. The green on the inside of the tree trunks near the base tend to form a line because it doesn't follow through to the other side of the trunk. I'd break that up just a tad. Other than that.. leave it alone, it's beautiful.

Thank you all for your kind and helpful comments. I'm going to have to learn how to photograph a painting as my photos I am posting have to much distortion both in size and color. Have a good day and happy painting!

i offer a black and white for you to have a look at ... note the upper right section - beautiful!
suggest bumping up the darkest values a bit more elsewhere in the painting ... all that color is yummy, but the nice dark darks will allow brief little rest spots for the eyes
