Love the calm emotion of the painting. A calm point of the day where the world is starting to rest.

First this is a really great painting i love all the colors! Second I was wondering which colors you mixed to get your yellowish/ peach color for the sky?

Beautiful work, it took me a while to realise the medium..
I don't understand why the shrubs and trees' leaves are diffused at the edges, rather blurry - I suppose it's technique-related or just the kind of effect/mood you wanted to achieve?

I do love the colours and composition and especially the subject matter - it's very uncommon to find landscape paintings full of mud and puddles and this one was executed wonderfully :)

It looks fantastic. Especially the reflection on the water.. Great. The painting is alive. But that moon looks odd. The sky looks like about 6~7 PM which the moon should not show. Just an opinion.

Fantastic, but the focus is kinda diffused amongst the elements. Depending on how you look at the painting as a whole, it shows the relation in between objects. That's how you wanted it yes?

Yes, exactly. That’s a kind of painting that depends on my mood. I didn’ttry to correct what’s going on the canvas with my mind.)
