Country lane

8x10 oil on wood

Not really feeling good about this effort. The road drops away from vied down hill and i'm not sure if it reads well just by changing the road width. I really wanted to make the tree look real and I don't feel good about that either. Should have made the close grass values higher and richer. I'll get it next time.

Here are some more of those purple thistles.

I like it very much. Sorry, but I do not agree with your critique. "Real" will lead to photo type of painting, but this piece is art. There is a feeling of hot late summer day, perspective and composition are so harmonious.
