Continuing an Idea--What Eats What

Following along a food web theme, I just completed a new painting. This time I have included a second heron, and simplified the rocks, water and animals. I used my petroglyph stamps to create a depth to the background cliff. I like giving a nod to us humans, but use petroglyphs to symbolize humans. The animals are where the action is, for sure.

Here are two previous paintings along this theme. I'd love to get comments regarding the theme and opinions on the three paintings.

Hi Margaret,
On your newest painting I really like the texture of the background cliff, and I think it goes well with the speckles on the trout.

The things I enjoy about the second image are the darker values, and how they lead the eye through the painting.

Perhaps you could use a bit more repetition of pattern and a few more darks in the new painting?
