A quiet place, landscape painting - Day 18, 30 days hath September challenge

A Quiet Place oil painting
24x35cm (approx 10"x14")
Oil on wrapped canvas
Day 18, 30 days hath September challenge
The painting for day 18 of the challenge is an English scene of a quiet backwater in the Lake District, UK.

This was started with a brush and finished with a palette knife. I will leave this a few days to see if it needs more work. I am thinking about increasing the size of the reddish tree and adding more reflections and I still have to decide if it needs more light or if that will spoil the feeling of solitude. What do you think?
