    This is the drawing. There are also a number of thumbnails too if anyone is interested in seeing them.

    I'd recommend using larger and harder brushes. As it is, I can make out the form, but it's still rather muddled.

    Yes, ditch the airbrush and use hard-edged brushes. Define large blocks of light and shadow first, then add just enough detail but don't overdo it.

    You must define the clear division of light and shadows, or it won't work. (Imitating Kinkaid won't help you here, his tagline "the painter of light" is a marketing tool, not an accurate characteristic.)

    Don't listen to the others!
    They give you advice on how to do a solid landscape painting and not a Kinkade painting.

    You've already got the main ingredients for a Kinkade original, the whimsical huts, the clouds and the water... but it misses some things..
    Here's a shopping list of stuff you'll need in your painting:

    - gradients - things that goes from yellow to orange to pink to lilac, the softer the better
    - large spaces of bright and saturated color - more brights than darks, even at night
    - a darkening towards the edges
    - a pattern of warm colors vs. cold colors
    - the following elements: House with all lights on, water, trees, sky, grass, rock, flowers, small animals, sunset
    - different random unseen lightsources
    - especially appealing light situations all in one painting: golden hour light, dappled light, reflections
    - a path that leads into the picture (essential!)
    - a happy grandma outside the picture frame




    I've attempted an overpaint but my Kinkade skills are lacking
