Re: Field of Flowers
One other concept to keep in mind is when painting a road, path, or river that goes off into the distance, make sure it narrows along the way and avoid painting it too high up on the canvas. A good rule of thumb is to keep the obvious part of the path or river in the lower 1/3 of the canvas. This isn't a hard rule, but it avoids creating situations where the path seems to be going up vs. fading away into the distance.
Anyway, you're off to a good start, and the folks in this forum are eager to help.
