Bill, to lead the eye better into the painting, I suggest you darker the road at the bottom and then let the road gradually get lighter towards the distance. Lift out the color where needed. The lightest area must be at the focal point.  O0 Check out my roads in the other paintings.

This is lovely, Bill.  After you apply Dennis's suggestion, it will be perfect.

You are doing so well.
