Another go at acrylics

My acrylic paintings tend to be heavy and dark. So why did I choose to paint a sunset?  Heavy and dark. I know my paint was very dry, too.

Suggestions are welcome!

    You have a really good sense of composition and color! The only thing I would suggest is to think about your edges and color/value intensity as the composition moves farther in to space. For example, as objects are further away, they appear less defined ( edges soften and look less dark or saturated) compared to objects in the foreground. This is not really a rule or anything, just something I find helps when conveying a space! Great work! 🙂
