I thought that you'd not painted the kid, the fish and the lilly pads intentionally It just looked significant... With more practice you'll be fine with using oil, because it does look like you coloured as if you were using watercolours. Just wondering, did you have any trouble with it drying too quickly? I usually have that problem
Ahh it looks very nice so far! Even if it's incomplete, I can sorta see what the finished product may look like. I'm looking forward to when you do finish this. Lovely technique on coloring the leaves.
