This is an example of the lessons I am trying to learn:
Here is what I have for now:
I must practice the background much more, and the tree in the forground is a bit to animated. The grass is also too blended.
Tim Gagnon is hosting a contest : Link
I still have a few days to practice before deciding if I can paint something good enough to participate with. There are soo many artist in the contest that are much better than me. That sucks, right? Someone is always better. The chinese says that it is better to always be number 2. That keeps you up on your toes :-)
