Hi Abhigill, the values are too close. Lighten the hills in the background to make them recede. Perhaps a few more darks added in the foreground. Also look to your light source and add shadings and shadows where needed.
I think it needs a bit of life added, a little creature or birds....vultures in the sky? Think about it and see what you come up with, a few little sketches may help you decide.  O0

Very nice painting at this point, don't give up on it.  :cheering:    :clap: :clap: :clap:

Abhigill,

How nice to see your posting.   Val has given you good suggestions. 

Before adding anything to the painting, I paint it on a small piece of clear plastic (like a piece of sheet protector) and place it over the painting to see how it will look.  Sure saves a lot of trouble if it's not going to look good.

Your tree is really beautiful.

Look forward to seeing the final version.
