    W.I.P landscape!

    Here's the outline and original colour thumb of a big garden I'm illustrating.

    Any crits appreciated! I wanted to keep with the original lighting from the colour thumb, but I felt all the darkness was making the scene appear too much like a forest and not a garden(?), so I went and made the background more open. Not sure if it's the right move or not though.

    Thanks for your time guys

    Your new sketch looks more like a hill in the woods/country side than a garden. Usually gardens are flat and sectioned. How did you envision this? Do you have anymore sketches?

    I agree with Kya, it's a bit too "natural" to look like a garden. Needs some neater, more organized landscaping to get the idea across. Straighter, pruned trees, flowers organized in groups, obviously man-made arrangements of rocks and ponds, paths for walking through, things like that.

    The colour thumbnail looks like it was a study from my girlfriend's back garden (not kidding, it's pretty much identical, swing and all) .

    I do agree with the others, if you're going for 'garden', it probably needs some man-made/planned elements. Does feel like somewhere out in a forest currently.

    Look forward to seeing what you do with it dude

    It's slanting down and to the bottom right corner, where our eye flies off the page. Add some plants or rocks on the left and consider a canvas extension right.
