    Love it overall.

    There's a technical point which will serve you in future paintings if you get it worked out how it plays.

    I would put a shadow under the closest brush if I'm reading it correctly. And the reflections would include that brush rather than the tree trunk as that starts much higher. Often times one can just duplicate (if it's on a layer or copy and paste if it's not) and invert whatever it is that's being reflected, and blur and waterize it a bit. So it becomes sort of automatic what would be there. But if it's hanging over the water there would be a shadow underneath it in an irregular way owing to the irregular edge of the brush. Right now the brush looks like an afterthought to cover something that may not have been working. Not saying that is the case, but the reflections look like they were made before the flowery brush.

    But like I said, I really like the feel of this one.

    Hi Alexandra,
    Great job.
    Something i like so much is the depth, very impressive, and the subject of your painting.

    Best,

    Weeks
