Doesn't know how to use brushes properly

I have a feeling I am not using my brushes the correct way. My values in this painting seem to work and so does the composition, sort of I suppose. But when it comes to painting the actual elements that tell the story, I find myself seriously lacking fire power. I believe I should do some more studies of rocks, plants, foliage. Time to get outside...
