I really like what you've got here.........wouldn't have thought to paint 'just a road' myself.

Maybe, maybe.........a touch darker on the side road in the foreground, like a little better defined..or how about some grass stems kinda scratched through.....not a lot, a few I mean.......Well that's the only part of the picture that I find myself going back to for some reason (?)

I'd say more like 80% -my opinion
its way good....some dark tucked in along between the grass and the roadside for some contrast...its wonderful......
really, makes me want to hit the road and turn up the music..

Thanks everyone, I sure wasn't sure about this one....

Andy, I DO need to go back and bring the grass over to the road... I don't think of this as "just a road", to me it is "the way streaks of sunlight play across the wet pavement of a lonely country road after a late afternoon rain shower" but that's too long of a title, and as I said, I wasn't sure I'd hit it

Thanks Diane, I was thinking of adding some on the right side of the road between the dip and the guard rail, is that where you meant?

Thanks Jerry, "holographic" YES!!

Jim, thanks, I got away with Ultra Blue, Cad Yellow Med, Burnt Sienna, a touch of TRO for the oranges. And white.

Mark

Love this!
Looks just like the road I take to the beach with shadows from clouds following you. Especially love the light on the tree above the guard rail.
Only thing I would give more thought to is the area where you signed. It seems to attract too much.
