This is an interesting artwork. The lake invites to take a swim. The clouds seem the announcement of an incoming storm. The contradiction of the shore in the foreground and the lake which still catching sunlight, and the stormy sky is intriguing. I like your bold brushstroke and your attention to realistic detail. Perspective and proportions are correct. The landscape is well composed and framed. The composition is balanced.

Very pretty green and blue. I really like the way you draw these clouds. It make people see right away what kind of weather this photo was taken under.
I wish I was there in person and walking on the clear lake water.

A beautiful and so pleasingly soft painting of this pretty scene! I love the flowing colors of the water and the sand at the edge is well done. The gorgeous sky is amazing and a great cap to the piece. Nicely done and best wishes for the upcoming contest!

Nice painting of he lake in the Northern California hat does reminds me all the summers we traveled by from the coast.
You have captured the big size and colors so beautifully.
The portrait orientation is so suitable for this great contest entry!

Very beautiful painting of this lovely lake! I especially like the blue and green tones of the water. The composition is nice, drawing the eye in along the rocks. Good entry for this competition. Good luck!

A good looking image posted here into the competition! Your fine and classical composition offers us an enjoyable view of that beautiful location. That lake looks cold even from my study, so he must be a very hardy lad! Colours and tones are good. Well painted and good luck!

I started to give this a 4 1/2 but changed my mind. The painting seems to be overshadowed by the largeness of the sky and water. I would have liked to see more of the ground on the right.
