It's a beautiful scene, lovely colors! Especially the sky and Mts.!
You did an outstanding job on the water as well!.
I do believe that the reddish foliaged tree is distracting and would serve the composition better if it were toned down or removed(or moved to other grouping of trees, possibly in the forefront). It's current position/color...stops my eye dead center of the painting.
On the reflections, the old mill's reflection is wonderfully done, but I do not think we would be seeing as much reflection of the trees given the lighting(I'm assuming overhead), and their positioning further up the hill.
Shadows below the trees would be more correct, I think.
Am I making any sense? :P :lol:
If lighting were coming from the right of painting, for example, then the reflections should be more elongated to the left....anyway...it is a beautiful painting and very well done!

Yes. You are making alot of sense. I appreciate it. I see what you mean about the red tree. But the light is coming from the front. Or maybe not. You have me thinking about it. Thankyou

The more I look at it. Your right. Do you think I should go ahead and change the color of the tree and put the shadows in front on the foreground trees?

Sorry for delay in response, my life is hectic at the moment...
If possible I would remove the reddish tree altogether, though not sure you can do that at this stage?
If not, try a toning down of the colors, something much more muted.
Yes, I would add the shadows to the midground trees.
Hope that helps. :wink:

This is a very nice and warm painting. One could get lost in this work.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.
