Subject title: Establishing a Summer feel and need landscape drawing advice

I'm just gonna say it, my landscape is kinda flat. :(

I wanted to try and get an outdoors look. Are the trees and shrubs too much? Should I lower my horizon? I'm using the Third by third rule, but I'm not sure if I done it right. Is my problem in the values? Feedbacks appreciated~

im not familiar with landscapes, but I think for a summer feel a lot of god rays and shine with crystal blue skies and clouds would be a nice summer, and lots of water and foliage

Thanks for the tip!

I tried grey scaling my work and establish background white to forground black. The foliage was a nice thought I wouldn't have think of. However, i wasn't sure howw to put more water. Maybe a hose would be nice. I'm just not sure where to place it.

I've made a little more progress. I can't tell if the people are authentic since I wanteed to do a hybrid between semi-realism and manga-style. I don't think they blend with the landscape well either.

Good job! Definitely better than before! But if you want to improve on your painting I suggest you study James gurney, he's amazing

I know you asked for landscape advice, but the face of the girl on the left is noticeably smushed downwards; particularly her eye sockets.
That's not summer, that's bummer.
