    In Need of Help with Landscape Painting

    This is one of my first serious digital painting landscapes. Help with taking this further would be great.

    Do ask for specific help if you need any, you are sure to get more response and obviously better help!

    One big think I would concentrate on is using value effectively, at the moment things are very close in value and perhaps a bit arbitrarily so. Squint and you will see what I mean a bit better. A good guideline to experiment with, but perhaps not be bound to is place a dark object near a light area and a light area near a dark object. Think about a solid lightsource, and how you could use areas to your advantage. You could put the white bunny in shadow, or a darker field. Also, a greater variety of values will add interest; variety is the spice of life after all.

    Cheers!

    Idiot Apathy-
    Ok, thanks for the help! I tried adding more contrast in value, not sure if it's enough though...

    Update:
    I think it felt a little cramped so I added a bit to the sides. Anyone think the foreground tree is awkward or that the picture seems unbalanced? I'm not sure what else to do other than paint in more contrast.
