Re: Untitled

Nice. Tone down the values in the foreground. Avoid the straight line created by the grass, ex. make it taller on lower right side or add a bush.

Re: Untitled

Thanks for the feedback! After sleeping on it i agree the values up front are too intense. I think adding in more of that golden color and less green would help and would reflect the refrence photo more accurately. Also the bush should be more of an olive tone so it seems more cohesive.

Hadn't thought about the straight line the grass made, will be fixing it. I knew that area was off and i think you've nailed the reasons why. Thanks!

The water line needs to be leveled. Maybe the photo of the painting is to blame.

Re: Untitled

Yes the waterline bothers me too but the bank is not a straight line, there's a bank in the mid ground, an island out in the middle set further back, and then more bank off in the distance. It makes the waterline look skewed :/

Hi! I think when painting landscapes it's ok to 'lie' @ what is actually there. Get rid of what doesn't look right etc. etc. or is too difficult to render. Possibly the furthest trees and their reflections should be darker? Not certain reflective color carries that far into the distance. Thanks.
