The Good: Overall a very well piece. Great mood and the landscape is gorgeous! I like that it tells an actual story. The color pallette is good too (the back light is yellow, along with girls dress, and the landscape is green along with man's coat). The hands are pretty strong part of the painting, as well. It's fun!
The Patchy: There is a very strong backlight, but the characters are lit from the front. You can just add some lights hitting the ground they are walking on infront of them. The girl's face, in my opinion, is too extreme in her disgust. I think a more subtle aloof look would have made this scene more humorous. Less would have been better in that instance, but that's my personal preference. Both of the man's arms are pressed up too much against his body, and the right arm is at an awkward angle. I would have pushed his elbows away from his body a little bit more and lossen up his pose. The woman could use more color/blush on her face, but the man looks good. The man's clothes could be detailed a little more with folds and stuff, but the woman's clothes looks good. You could put bars of sun rays in the upper left hand corner coming from the trees, thus lighting up the foreground a bit!
This scene reminds me of how girls usually react to me when I try to flirt with them...
