Advice please!

Hi everyone!
I just started a new piece. I would consider myself a beginner when it comes to acrylic painting. I wanted to make this piece very colorful almost like my own version of wonderland. I need help with making a path go all the way into the background of the painting. Also any advice on painting water would be great!

This is a good start - maybe you need to consider a horizon line and taper the stream away from you so that it fades away.
Another thing is that you have the river over the front of the tree.
You should maybe consider drawing and painting the sky line and horizon and then the river coming forward.
Remember you need not show all the river - let the viewing person decide that - it adds excitement.
I love the fantasy element in your painting with the large mushrooms.
(I hope they are mushrooms - apologies if they are trees :) )

Fade the river after the bridge and look from a lower level of perspective rather than a birds eye view...
