This is quite a beautiful painting. The colour choices were well handled and create a pleasant harmony throughout the piece.

I like how you incorporated smaller strokes of red and yellow in the background to indicate trees in the distance. It adds a lot of depth and prevents flatness. It also helps your eye move through the composition.

I would suggest making this landscape instead of portrait. Right now the foreground dominates the piece and the background is somewhat neglected in the top third. A landscape would help include the background and tone down the foreground's boldness.

Fabulous work overall.

You have been improving. :D
I think you'll continue to improve! This one seems to have more depth than the others... I wish I could put my thumb on what it is, but I cannot for the life of me! Ugh.

I will say one thing. The foreground (bottom, larger strokes) look like something you'd see around midday, while the background (top, smaller strokes) is staged around nighttime. It's a little offsetting—I mean, I'm not sure what I'm looking at regarding the lighting. Perhaps if the foreground had more blues and purples/violets mixed in with the red? Other than that, the water has been done so wonderfully. This is so pretty! Please continue painting!

I never knew somebody could use a palette knife with such precision and thought. My favorite part is the variety of colors you used.
