This is a very lovely, quiet piece with a peaceful yet mysterious atmosphere. Vision was given 4 stars, because the peaceful lakeside atmosphere is very prominent here, and well conveyed by the calm and lighter use of blue here. Nothing is bogged down with detail: the shapes are enough to tell us what is going on.

Originality was awarded 3.5 stars. At first glance the perspective in this scene is very interesting, because I've never seen the corner of any place presented like this. Also, the painting technique used here to represent objects through their basic shape and lighting is a fitting choice to accompany the theme of lakeside serenity.

Technique was awarded 4 stars. The use of graphite and watercolor here is very nice and they blend well together. The one-point perspective is used nicely here, and the painting style is very nice. The plants are most intriguing, because we get a sense of their shape and texture without needing a lot of detail.

Overall Impact was given 3.5 stars. The is painting is very mellow, and calm. It doesn't scream at you, but speaks in soft whispers. The lightness of the blues is serene; however, there could be a greater amount of contrast in the values, which would pull our eye to one specific spot. This would give the piece a stronger impact.

Mi piace molto questo. It has a certain mood that is reminiscent of the Italian grace and style that I love. It looks like an actual scene that you’ve captured. What lake?
