There is something peaceful about your three pieces, I am not sure if you were going for that. I think they are nice. That said, Cut loose, and keep painting.

Hi,

I like these just the way they are.  They are very gentle and serene, and would look great in just the right frame.  I like your use of color...the golden yellows next to the bright blue...the earthy/coral/pinks and soft blues... really nice, interesting harmonies!

Most notably in the first two pictures, there is a kind of horizontal quality in the composition that doesn't try too hard to draw the viewer in... but I think it works in combination with the softness of the paint:  it makes the picture feel far away, almost like a memory or a dream.

I wasn't consciously trying for peacefulness.  I am a beginner, and practising how to use the paint is my main focus at this stage. 

The photos I based them on were of still water views so maybe that is what gives them a peaceful feel.
