Please have a look at my painting

Postby nadim » Sun Sep 26, 2010 3:02 am

I feel I am getting close to the end of this painting, but I really feel like something is missing. Here's what I plan to do, tell me what you think:

Add something in the middle space, like a wall or a painting

Clean up and sharpen the edges in and around the window

Correct the eye on the girl, it is slightly missplaced.

Do you have any suggestions?

Oh and you'll notice a glare on the painting in the top center. That is due to the poor lighting it was shot in. There is no glare on the actual painting itself.

Hello Nadim, I would call this work done. Frame it.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Yes, I agree with others, it's done, wonderfully done, that is. I like the negative space between her and the window, the eyes are not distracted by detail, and they shouldn't. Great job!

She seems to me to be trapped in the horrible blackness of depression and craves to get out to the light.

Technically, I think it is a wonderful painting.
