Sacramento River

After nearly half a year off I am finally back to painting again. This painting is my debut From a photograph I took of the Sacramento River near Orland Ca. Not finished yet I'd love to get some advice as to the direction I am going.

Re: Sacramento River

I think if you had more variety in terms of value, color and shapes on the far shore, it would make the painting more interesting. Also, if you moved the break between the mid shore and the very distant shore a little to the right, you might be able to add more interest to it.

Re: Sacramento River

Maybe some softer blued tones for the far tree lines to give distance & atmosphere..and break up all the greens..
Maybe even a bit of darker blued shadows under the far treeline foliage.. darks will make the light pop more..

Re: Sacramento River

Thanks. Good suggestions. It has been told to me before about blueing the distant objects. You would think I would remember .
