I tried to stretch my background color and ended up diluting it too much which imho is why the foreground is not great. Not the first time I've made that mistake; When i pick up my brushes again, I know i will be more attentive to contrast.
Love the way the sky & reflection turned out. Cake icing mountains is probably due to fact i didn't prime with a 2nd coat.
I didn't really like using the two inch brush technique for the trees, made the brush almost un-reusable from all the paint loaded in, but the island as a whole came out pretty well all things considered.
