    So I've been noodling with this piece for a few days now, but I think I need to get some constructive criticism before I go too much further.
    Looking for ideas or opinions on colors and composition, primarily. Thanks to whomever stops by to take a look, your feedback is much appreciated!

    I'm not gonna be much help in terms of landscapes, but I just wanted to say that I really like the colors. They're kind of surreal, wow...

    I can't really read the lower half of the piece, perhaps you should show more of the reflection of the sky on that puddle of water.

    The colours are really pretty, but I think Azusa has it right... if you were to change the piece to black and white, your lower half of the painting would pretty much blend into one big dark shape. Think about the shapes you're making with the rocks and how they make your eye flow around the image. The character stands out nicely but you could be clever with the way the rocks lead the eye to him. You also don't have many planes in the image - there's the water in the foreground and the one rock one one plane, then all the rocks and the character on another plane and then the sky. Try experimenting with layering your rock formations and seperating planes with some atmosphere to help create more depth.

    That centre rock - is the character behind it or standing on it? Bit of an overlap problem. I like the colours too. Maybe make them a bit more saturated on the rocks in places, but go easy; just a tad.

    Update on the piece! Been noodling with the water, as well as rock formations. I think it's starting to get slightly less hodgepodge.

    Constructive Crit is always welcome!

    The rock formations are looking good, nice natural breakup of forms and planes. The colors read as underwater to me, though. Also with that river, maybe those rocks would have some nice specular highlight reflections there they are wet from the water, always a nice detail on a landscape with water.
