New Painting

This piece is painting onto a traditional stretched canvas and I have painted the entire picture in rather than leaving sections to the imagination. One thing that I am conscious to avoid is just painting a cliche landscape painting. I think this avoided when using the brightly coloured fabrics underneath, but not so much when a romanticised scene like this one is painted in a more traditional way. Elements I like in this piece are ; the depth in the sky (the clouds look as if they could be hovering above you), the light colour scheme (fairy tale sense), soft brush strokes to create the texture of grass, pops of a pink colour to bring some energy, and the more scratchy marks in the foreground to create detail.
