Simply lessen the size in Photoshop or comparable program. Possibly Paint, before you transfer.

You have talent :) I do feel painting like the last one is more your style? And the lady in the meadow.

If you do landscapes make sure large bushes and trees don't end up looking like solid columns. Unless you want to go for that style. It makes them look unnatural. You can see through bushes and trees, a bit of background or sky. They're not solid.
The same goes for smaller shrubs, and especially the top layer, for instance the ones bordering a lake, should have some 'see through' and/or sticky out bits.
Look at the last posted landscape. The red plant stuff in the foreground... Their tops form a rounded shape, almost like a horizontal line on the canvas. That's not natural.
It's exactly those small details that make the difference when painting a landscape.
Very easy when you see Bob (Ross) do it, but the man had decades of experience and had developed his own technique and how to work brushes.
The same goes for highlights. Put less paint on the brush and make sure you don't end up with highlights that all have the same (fan brush) shape. Same for the smaller brush you've used :p
Less paint, again, see through. Highlight are just that, highlights. Not solid blobs of paint.
Experiment with other brushes for this, if you've watched Bob Ross, he can do just about anything with a fan brush. Doesn't mean you can do the same thing. You have to find your own brushes & technique for things.
I'm not a fan brush magician either. Stupid things either spread out all over the place when they shouldn't or don't when they should.
But less paint on the brush for highlights will certainly help.
And as bob Ross says: think about each individual limb when painting a tree/bush/shrub AND when putting highlights on them. Look at the second last landscape, which btw is effing stunning: the highlights on trees on the left hand side all are a diagonal line. Trees aren't like that, they have different shaped and sized branches, clutters of leafs which all have different size & shapes highlights as well. Think about EACH limb as you paint.
Hope that helps. Keep up the happy painting!

Thanks Fairy Crystal,

I'll think about all you've suggested. I wish I had more time for painting. I'm in the process of doing a big purge at home at the moment - getting rid of clutter. Finally I have space to work in again. Hopefully I can post something new soon.

Composition is something I'm not too good at - hence all the straight lines.


Below is my favourite of mine from a couple years ago - it's hanging up in my room
