These posts seem to be getting mixed up somehow. Any way, here we do indeed have that '"acid orange" that I mentioned--but that is not meant to detract from the color, which is again effectively controlled. This looks like 19th-century Britain.

As a painter friend of mine observed, "nothing is harder than the nothing areas," and here there's an imbalance between your preoccupation with the postive forms and relative want of concern for the residual spaces--the sky and foreground, which need more consideration--not, of course, by adding more positive forms, but by having something purposeful to say in paint about the largest areas in the composition.

Although the image is of course inadequte to convey the original, you seem to be "painterly" in your approach.
