You DO have talent, you just need to get more experience.

Practice and maybe read a few books or watch an instructional video to pick up some techniques. You can also take a painting class at a community college or art organization.

I agree that practice is key. Your work is very good, in my opinion. Just takes repitition and "learning by doing" to improve. You have the talent. It might be a matter of learning theory to know what and why to do something a certain way.

all the best,

Nice subject but I think the perspective is not right on the stones. They do not "lead" me to the prime subject i.e. the mill. I also think the perspective is incorrect on the house. Perhaps you should read about vanishing points and perspective.

To end on a positive I think the trees,sky and water are lovely.

Although there is a wide variety of values overall there isn't enough contrast between local values.

The more I paint the more I realize I don't know.
Practice alone will not get you there.
By learning the basics of composition, value, color, narration, balance, etc. you'll start to perceive the real world in a new light. Only when you can find these aspect that are revered in art in real life will you be able to reapply it back into your work.
