    Lake Painting

    Tell me what you think. It's 12x12, acrylic on masonite.

    just my opinion,

    when starting on something, ask yourself. what am i trying to achieve. what am i saying/trying to capture/trying to learn...

    personally, i'd suggest working on a light source, using naturalistic colors(take too many liberties and those liberties become what the painting's about). it's art, so we can all go crazy, but you can be mindful of what you're doing.

    i cant understand what this painting is trying to be. i hope i wasn't too harsh.

    The picture looks flat.. you have no strong light source at all. Even if you wanted to drop out the sun, there should still be more to the shadows then i see here. Since its acrylic, you should add in some highlights now that it is dry and see if you can make it 'pop' more.

    As for general composition.. it resembles this shape too much-> [v]
    This is never good for landscapes.. it makes it hard to see or understand the environment.

    Other then that.. i would just say this picture leaves me wanting.
