Speed Painting Daily's - Fall

i did a small sketch of this one on paper which helped a lot. this took around an hr... an hr 10 mins maybe? still wanna add rocks... maybe a toad on the bottom... some more highlights on the water since the black and white values are a little even all the way across. I am not entirely thrilled about the sky... but it sets a little mood i guess. More details to the trunk maybe. i like fall colors. i like painting. any comments?
UPDATE: 20 more mins adding dead leafs around, shrooms more contrast over all, highlights everywhere. I think i can still go higher in the highlights.. more like bloom. We'll see.

Speed Painting Daily's - 60 min digital paintings.

1st: Theme: Electric Island
Photoshop, render time in 50 mins. Lots of work still to do, but good practice.

2nd: New sketch... 50 mins, i might work on this tomorrow to get it more polished and a tighter look. Still unfinished.

3rd: only 25 mins to spare on this one, i'll get to work on this one later today maybe, and tomorrow spend another hr. I'll prbly work the rest of the week between this one and the other one i guess. UPDATE: added 20 mins of work... revised the perspective and started adding bigger shapes... need to pick the speed up on this one.
