This was my very first oil painting I did. So you can be honest...

(I only focused on the landscape)

I like this one the best! The hills look incredibly realistic


However all of them are better than anything I could ever paint lol.

Reasonably executed and pretty good for a first time!

What size is the frame? The picture gives no idea of scale.

The painting itself is on a A4 painting bord.

Are you open to some constructive criticism?

The painting is pretty good, colors on the mountains (i.e. depth) are perfect. I know you said you focused only on the landscape, but you need something to grab to the attention. Someone walked past the painting they would notice it, and that it's nice, but the moment would be fleeting. If you had something in the foreground that they could "investigate", it would be perfect. Like the "mother and child" cows in the original painting could've worked perfectly well.

Still, for a first oil, that is excellent. Keep painting!

But that's just my opinion - one artist to another.

I always welcome constructive criticism!!

If you look very closely, (a bit hard to do this on a pc screen), but you will see a lake, it is a bit more clear blue. Maybe the photo is a bit to small to see the focus point of the painting.

I thought that I should someday paint the original photo, "mother and child" cows included, on a big stretched canvas. maybe in the year 2015!

Thanks again for all the constructive criticism from all of you, throughout all my art threads!!
