I am just a little bit stuck.

Work in progress
Where do you go from here?
 I have some ideas, do you?
I think photos really help as it can magnify problems.
What do you think .....
is a diet for the top ship in order?
I am hoping by reducing the size of the top ship it will help with the composition of this painting
Feedback would be great
What would you do?

I really, really like this. Maybe reduce it just a tad and tone down the white sails but that's all. I wouldn't chane much it's fantastic!!

Hi - to me it looks like the figure could be "blowing" the sail boats across the painting. Try laying a piece of acetate or tracing paper over the piece and see what would happen to the composition if you used "wind" to connect the 3 somehow. You may not have to "shrink" one of the ships. Hope this helps

This is so cool!

Manon said...

Thank you so much for the feed back !!!! So far
I am toning down the sails and playing with the wind!

Very cool beginning,I'm loving it so far. When I first looked at it,I thought the same thing as Karen,she looks to be blowing. What about something to resemble water at the bottom? Hope this helps alittle.

Manon said...

Thanks Buffy I am going to try water. I am figuring out water witout introducing another colour. Lol this is more difficult then I thought! Thank you for your feedback!

If I were you I would draw some black curvy lines to tie it all together! Patsy from

It's looking good.
Sometimes I just walk away from an art work if I've been working on it to long. I take a break, do something else, and come back refreshed.

I am going to draw the black curving lines but for now I am having a rest and will come back to this painting later!
PS: Thank you for all the advice, I am loving this!
