I love this more than I can describe, and I'm a novelist. Anyway, if you ever find yourself in Vietnam, go to Hoi An and paint the lanterns there. I can't tell you how gorgeous it is. It's not just the lanterns. It's the sense of wonder. However, if you're going to go, DO NOT GO DURING SUMMER. I've been there in winter, and there was not one day that was not shorts weather.
You definitely need to work on your perspective. You've got your coloring down but the sense of depth is atrocious. It would really bring your work up a sizeable notch with a little bit more effort!
Beautiful, but......Brr..... I used to live in place that would get snow storms like that. It was a wonder to look at, but if you were out and about I would hope you were dressed up warm. The wind in eastern Montana could get really rough.
