Don't be too hard on yourself! You are doing a great job of learning how to capture landscape elements. It takes a lot of practice to pull the many pieces of a successful painting together consistently.
There is still so much I am learning and I've been at this for over 25 years. I have so many interests! It's hard to limit myself to painting or drawing. I just try to add elements of this in the many different things I like to do.
Over time I find it gets easier to create exactly what I have in mind. Most of all, keep making time to create. I believe that this is one thing that makes the most difference! Giving ourselves lots of opportunities to make art is one of the best ways to spend my time. In fact, I think it's better than just about anything else! Enjoy! ; >
