Hello everyone! I am new on this forum and I will be happy if you critique my art. I am Ana, currently junior at college majoring in finance and management. Your advice and feedback will be very valuable for me and will help me to improve my techniques. I am self-trained and your critique will help me see my mistakes:)

size: 50/60 cm
medium: oil on canvas

Landscape of a wooden house in fog.

please give me some feedback and advice to improve my work. Is it ok? is it good?

Ana,
Your off to a great start!
I don't want to bombard you with too much so I'll start off slow and I'll develop my concepts as you respond.
1. See how the foreground and middle ground are the small value? To create more depth lighten the background. Which leads me to my next point
2. Just over the hill in the bg the fog stops abruptly, as if there is an invisible wall it cant get past. This artificial line doesn't help the composition. If you soften the hill line by adding fog pouring over it (like you did just below) your eyes will gravitate to the house which is the focal point.

Just wanted to reiterate that you did a good good over all. The detail in the foreground and the smaller fence posts both help to give perspective.

Thank you for your feedback. You are absolutely right about the fog, it stops suddenly :) I left it like that because the canvas was wet and I wanted to let it dry and add fog after that. Then I started new painting and did not go back to this one. But after your feedback I saw it more clearly how important it is to add some fog so the border between fog and hill won't look so bad.
Thank you!

The improvement is lovely! It's instantly more mysterious and intriguing to me. I love the colors and the way you painted the trees. Remember though, for the future, to keep those lovely vibrant colors that are in the distance more blue and greyed down. It helps to make it feel more real, because that is what our eyes see in nature - atmospheric perspective (the air and "stuff" of the atmosphere floating in between us and the distant hills). Nice job Ana.
