This is one of my first few landscape paintings done without one clear reference. This is based off several pictures of Indian tree root bridges. I'm making this to put in my portfolio because I don't have any other landscapes (I mostly paint portraits). I tried to make the composition based on the rule of thirds. I'm liking how the left corner turned out, but I'm having real trouble with the scale and the size of the steps (added a stick figure for reference). Also, just general comments because I know there are probably a lot of other mistakes beginning to unfold. I also don't really know how to start making leaves in the background because they just look like fuzz when I use a leaf brush.
