The branches of the tree are too repetitive and fork out in multiples of two on each branch, which makes them seem somewhat unnatural. The lines for the bark are too perfect, long, and straight. The overall composition and positioning of the tree is good, though.

Even now, I tend to draw/paint in figurative fashions, depicting subjects in my own manner. I understand what you're saying, but I wasn't necessarily going for a realistic look with the tree. Thank you for the comment though! ^^

The sense of isolation can be felt from the tree,but the use of darker colors and lighter to give the tree a scale and balance work wonderfully here.
Its a wonderful piece,and how it came out is just amazing!

Critique: Very nice. I noticed near the bottom with the grass, most of them are leveled, but one part is much larger than the rest. Usually if that proportion of something was not done on purpose, its okay to bring the rest of it to the same level as the mistake. Also, the tree sticks out in front of the grass, when averagely there is still some grass slightly covering the stump of the tree.There are a few different shades in the sky I noticed, but that's perfectly fine. For the branches on the tree, most of the time they aren't that curved/rounded. So try to give them more of a line shape. Take lightening for example. When I draw branches, I think of lightening because the shapes are somewhat similar. Yet great work.

I don't think I was really paying too much attention when I was painting the grass in the sense of making them all look the same. Regarding the trees and the sky, I guess I just felt like drawing the tree that way in a really stylistic fashion, also I think 'cause I didn't really know else how to draw trees, hahahahaha. And as for the sky, eh...it's painterly, which is cool. To be honest, this is a style I don't really use anymore...it doesn't really work too well. It's a successful painting and I enjoy it, just not a style that I use too much anymore...but thank you for your comment! :)

Very simple parinting / drawing you have created here. Not bad either. I would say you are a medium painter right here. But why so little in this image? When you make it so super simpel you need to notice details, or add them. Like skyes in the heaven. maybe a bird in the three. Maybe a flower. Or maybe it should be foggy outside. Or create a background? I feel like this painting / drawing is unfinished. It simple is to simple.

I'm not sure why I made it so simple. :p I guess it's true when you say that I could've added a few more details. Yeah, I've been painting for about a year, so you could that I'm a beginner, but then again everyone has something new to learn. :)

My favorite things about this one are how you used vertical lines to render the tree, and the rough strokes for the grass :) Those things create a neat effect.

I guess I haven't really studied trees too hard to depict them "realistically". So I chose to draw 'em like that for this piece. :) hahaha

I really like how the tree is split! Could that be a symbol perhaps? XD

I like the simplicity to this, and the use of negative space. I like the boldness of the grass against the gentle brush strokes of the sky.

The tree looks very nice, I really like the way you have done the outline/details on it. I am not too sure about the thinest branches(/twigs?) right at the top of the tree but at the same time I think they were probably necessary.

Why thank you! This is a style I don't really use anymore. I tried it for a few months or so and now I realize that I don't really like it.

I really like the tree, the way you left so much sky had made it feel very lonely. Great Job

Thank you! I painted the tree with acrylics instead of watercolor this time around. ( I used to draw something, outline it and then color it with watercolor in the past, but that style didn't work out...) I can definitely see some sort of lonely feel to this piece. Poor tree though...

I'm so used to diluting paint with water since I started with watercolor, but I'd say at least currently I guess I do like acrylic more than I like watercolor...currently, that is. Maybe some day I'll switch back to watercolor and use that more......

I started painting with watercolors first when I was 16 about 10 months ago ( January 2012) and then began working with acrylics when I was 17. ( May 2012) Currently, I'm working with acrylics a lot more than I am with watercolor, acrylics are a bit more versatile than watercolor, so it's really hard for me to say here.
