Watercolor in the Village

I submitted this to the artists of the Watercolor Workshop and had some very constructive criticism. I redid the background so that it did not compete with the foreground, added another smaller piece of driftwood to help direct the eyemovement up and around the painting. I also deepened the shadows on the umbrella and hopefully it is a stronger painting now. I have thought about adding some shorebirds - one on the table and one in the foreground on the right. I haven't decided about that yet.
