As you can see in my photo, I am working on a painting of palms in the sun and need some advice. Do you think I should fill the top right corner with
anches (of an encroaching palm from the right) or not. There will be more on the bottom right. I realize the painting is heavy on the left, but sometimes that's ok. Opinions appreciated.
Thanks,
Connie
PS I plan to glaze with subtle color over the sun spot and then clear over the rest. :D

Hi Connie,

I am not sure you need to add any on the right. The composition works for me as is. I look forward to seeing the next update.

all the best,
Joe
