Re: Past places
Good effort here, you have a solid idea to build off for sure.
Looking at this and your other pieces, I would say that you need to work on your fundamentals. That is your understanding of perspective, values, composition, colour theory,etc.
Right now there are major perspective issues going on in this making it difficult to read whats happening.
If you look at the waterwheel its seemingly attached to a building but the wrong way for water, the bridge is connected to the wheel somehow?
I am also not understanding if its water at the top right or snow. There is a lot of confusion.
Crack open a sketchbook and practice your perspective. There are lots of free tutorials online and youtube. If you only learn that this year, you will be a million times better.
Other than that, you need to separate your foreground, midground, and background more with better values. They are all muddled together. Have a look t it in black and white to see what I mean.
Finally, there is next to know shadows or obvious light direction.
Your off to a good start, you just need to work on the fundamentals. Keep at it and happy painting.
