:) Hi Deedee hope you are well. It is nice to see some more artwork from you. It looks lovely - like the colours etc but one comment I would make is that the darker blue (hedging?) I think would look nice if that part was probably mostly sky ? - I find it detracts you from looking at the front of the picture if you know what I mean - it would be nice if your eyes sort of went 'straight through' the picture. It seems a bit of a 'barrier'! Perhaps make the 'lake' a little larger - still with the 'edging' of a few smaller bushes etc but then open the picture up with the sky? What do you think?

Hi Deedee :)

Nice work thanks for sharing :)
I also have got few comments if you don't mind
I like the background of the painting just think the lake
does not seem like lake in the way you've done it. If I didn't
know the tittle of the painting I would think it's a green field.
I'd agree with Denise that you probably should soften the background
and especially that part where the lake reaches the mountain cos it really
distracts the attention from the foreground.

Another thing ... I'm not sure if these are the correct colors of
the painting but it's not the usual clear and fresh palette you use,
ie the colors on the foreground seem to me a bit muddy, sorry to say that
but I think the foreground should be more colorful and bright, hope you
don't mind me saying this.

That tree you have on the right side is too outlined in comparison with
that which is on left and it's closer in the painting, this somehow confuses
the perspective in the painting.

Hope to see some update on this one :)
