Re: "Canal"

Very nice. There is one thing though, there has to be a horizon line behind the nearest windmills. It just doesn’t make any sense otherwise. Here’s a quick photoshop to illustrate. For composition sake you may want to add some of those white flowers to the lower left, extending up to above the horizon line to tie it all together.

Re: "Canal"

Thank you Cliff and thank you Tom for taking time to critique my painting.

I see what your talking about with the horizon, my ref. photo didn't have that but because how I composed that section it needed to be taller on the other side of the water. what you have shown me is a quicker fix.

Also there were some flowers taller on both sides in the for ground, on the right they were out of focus. on the left side I cropped off about 1/4 of the photo, this being said I like your idea of having flowers above the horizon line on the left side.
