Hi thanks a ton... I happy you liked it...as i said I have been having some issues with getting my values so I made this painting once again Smile

It's the scale.
To make a piece with depth you gotta bend it more than what it is in reality, maybe the trees are pretty big in the reference you used but with 2d painting you do want to get some kind of illusion..... Well, that's what I would call it I guess. lol.

I really think you are doing fine here though, the most important is to keep trying and to keep changing your subject which you are doing here, this will teach you the most I believe.
To get back to your piece, it's also the scale of the balloon. Either you wanna have the balloon as a background feature, or something that is in the foreground which in that case would make the balloon bigger and detailed.

Keep up the good work. Smile
I made a quick couple of minutes overpaint....


P.s, I am hosting the overpaint on my site so I might take it down later.....

Hi there rockstar30,

this is just a quick reply and maybe you've already noticed this yourself, but what I would like to see is a stronger aerial perspective that affects the saturation and hue of the landscape more.

Like so:

Hope this helps. Smile

increase the depth by blending distance objects into the atmosphere Smile
