sky, river and left to do

I think the sky needs some red in it overshadowing the blue to gradiate it a bit more. the river needs boats and more going on. should it be darker? The left front needs more detail and the lighting needs work. Think the right could do with more lights and a few more hinted at details.

and I know the river is too wide.. hoping a ton of boats will offset that a little. Not keen on moving the banks.

This is a lovely work in oils. A lot of patient detail went into this artwork. Don't be so hard on yourself and self-critical. Relax and let the painting 'grow' itself.


By the way what are the dimensions?

Well done so far and keep it up.

God bless.

Thank you for the kind words. It's 24" by 18". Been staring at it fpr two months now without finishing it. Maybe this will be the weekend after your motivation

To my eye the sunset streak overpowers the building line more than anything else.
I would put in some tiny building tops to interact with the sunset or something darker to
relax that hard line. Buildings are great and I love that river. Thank You, E
