Clouds were thick at the beginning then Sun started peeking through, and it was sunny at the end. So the light changes fooled me and, as the result, the part of brush where sun light didn't directly hit was too light, losing contrast with the directly-lit part. Background forest's value is about right. Just doesn't have enough contrast between the top part and the bottom part, which was quite dark.
Even when I was painting, I didn't like the color of river water. I should have spent more time to get proper colors/values.

It was clouded and the sun was struggling to come out. But regardless I set up my easel when I found a creek in a swampy area leading toward the mountains.
I felt (actually they were) the backdrop mountain colors were too light. I should have made the midrange green more darker.
