Plein aire painting is not easy, and with this piece, you have done a great job. The meandering creek through the colorful marsh grass keeps the eyes moving about the painting and into the focal point of the tall trees in middle ground. A few specks of
ight white, representing a small flock of White Ibis, in front of those trees would strengthen the focal point a lot, and add some motion to the composition. The subtle, subdued coloring of the sky is good...does not allow your eyes to be drawn out of the scene. In the far background you added some green to the tree line that is mostly purple/blue....I would have left that out as it tends to distract from the feeling of depth. Finally, the lighter coloring of the marsh grass in the distance helps create depth. Well done!
