Not quite sure how I feel about this one. Do the colours work together? Are the shapes too constructed? Is the effect too cartoony?

I like the simplicity of it, and my eye keeps coming back to it. But do I fancy it hanging on my walls?

Green is never an easy colour - I used aureolin yellow and indigo for the trees, and indigo for the shadows. The low background is ultramarine - a vibrant contrast. But is the grass too green? Is it ever? Maybe cobalt turquoise and aureolin was too bold a combination? It's very hard to judge by a picture anyway - blue is a colour that doesn't transfer well to photograph, and I guess green is even worse. The original is nicer, believe me.

I'll just have to stop agonising. And paint another one!
