    I would add the grass on the edges of the rocks *bottom* a bit more so it looks like that it started growing on it too. Those mountains in the far back, should have that sky blue hue on top of them to show that it has that atmospheric perspective. Fix that
    Don't get me wrong, your has it, it just needs the right colors. Fix that tangent where the foreground rock touches with the one that's in the background. Make it overlap or make either one of them shorter. Also, in the right upper corner, the mountain that's far in the back and the one right in front of it, have a very similar shape, change that.

    Here is a quick paint over I did so you can understand me better. I would also leave more of the sky visible. Right now, it's very tight and no indication that there is an open world beyond these rocks. I also, darken it up a bit. One more thing, the mountain tops in the background shouldn't be that tall. Make them less taller than the ones in foreground and mid ground because of the perspective.

    If you call this piece "Approaching Tangent City" I think it works... I counted thirteen tangents...I'll let you try to identify them. The reason tangents are bad is they do two things you don't want: 1) they form a point of tension/focal point that generally is not someplace you want the viewer to look and 2) they often take two shapes or elements that are at different depths and combine them, which flattens the image.

    You have a decent start here that I think is worth working through.

    What would Caravaggio do?
