Hi Lexie
Can I suggest you put the silo and other objects in the distance in sharp focus and with a little more detail as this should not only give a focal point but also give the picture a bit more depth

I only thought that the painting needed a focal point so I suggested the Silo Another alternative would have been to place something in the Fore ground and that could be more detailed.

Hi Lexie it's me again
Although I like you field with its parallel lines as it gives a nice linear look
If you wanted a bit more depth then the lines really should have more perspective and be wider in the fore ground and narrow as they receded to the horizon

Hi Lexie
Its hard to tell how much perspective to introduce. Your painting reminded me of lavender fields in france and bulb fields in Holland so I have found a couple of examples on the internet which might explain what I mean.

thank you . these are very helpful to me. i notice the holland one has the windmill and the other buildings pretty sharp and well defined as you suggested.
how does one go about painting a sky like the one on the lavender fields, it also has perspective i guess. thanks lexie

The top sky is very busy with a lot of different colours and effects so I would think it would be better to paint this type of sky in oils or acrylic so you could built up the various layers. The bottom sky is perfect for watercolours as you can apply a blue wash and then dab out the clouds with a tissue

thank you. have never done oil or acrylics-you actually need to be able to paint to do that and im not so good at that.
this may be getting a bit away from this forum but on the lavender picture. the rows have a theoretical vanishing point off in the distance. looks to me like the clouds on the bottom might have a vanishing point off to the left while the clouds on the right might have a vanishing point going off to the right. would you pay any attention to such things when starting the sky. would you draw pencil lines first???
thanks lexie
