Really lovely painting Laura.

I love how the light is filtering through the trees on the left. Very bright and happy painting.

Great job!

I agree... I do think, IMHO, that if you softened those distant trees a little it would add more depth to your landscape...

Thumbs up

Lovely painting Laura.

Is the darkest blue tree in the back possibly too blue? Just a thought.

WOW!!

I really like it.... I feel colors are oustanding, and light from the left really works on shadows and colors....

Very good job!!

This is a beauty, Laura Agree that blue tree is maybe a little strong, no other critique to offer!

I love everything in the painting . That blue tree in the back does distract tho, if it were mine I'd lift the color a little.

I would soften the Blue Tree in the Back, it seems too be the same value, thats all i can see ,.

Laura,

I really like how you handled the reflections in the water--I'd like to know how you did them.

Agree about the blue trees--maybe some light glazes (yellow ochre, raw sienna?) to gradually tone them down? (I couldn't do it, but I read a lot...)
