This is an old acrylic from 2011 upon which I painted some depth and details again. I really don't know if I have managed to get the depth.
Please do tell me your thoughts about this. Anything to add or make better?  :)

It wasn't there when I first looked, so I went to get the bbc code to repost for you.  When I came back, there was the goose!  More PB weirdness!

It's cute.  Looks like a maestro leading the orchestra.

I love your goose, Gita. He does look like a maestro!  :2funny:
 The only thing that I can think of that might give it more depth would be to create more contrast between the water and sky. Right now the water and sky are really close in color. If you make that horizon more noticeable you might get more depth. Just my thoughts, but wait and see if anyone agrees.  :)

Thanks to Emma Lees suggestion, I corrected the values between the sky and the distant sea. Added two distant flying birds.
And I think the result is a lot better what the depth is considered. Hope you also think the same?
