Lake Louise

This is another attempt at the same view I tried back in November. I wasn't happy with the result back then and I am not satisfied now too. While there is some improvement, it is not the big change I expected to achieve. I have the feeling that I subconsciously try to stick to the same techniques and brushstrokes I have already done before. Maybe I should try a different mountain scene.

i think this is a great start, but it feels like four different paintings. Are you using the same colors throughout. a limited palette in other words. the red here is so domineering and overpowering. Maybe bring the back mountain into the same value range. Just some thoughts and hope I didn't step on your toes. But your painting really has great personality
peace n abundance

Thank you, CheyAnne, this is exactly the kind of feedback I need! I agree about the values and colors. The strong red was a dosage mistake, which I realized while still in process. Doing every layer of the mauntains individually makes it look like a set of two-dimensional layers, and also makes it hard to match the previously used color mix. Thank you again for your comments and advice!
