Making choices in painting.

Photographing a painting can help you critique it. 

I like the shapes in this painting, the blocky grays help to set off the flower cart.  

I am trying to decide about my effort to show the reflections of the art tents in the window.  Are they distracting and unreadable?  It would be easy to paint them out at this stage but I keep thinking about it.  The working title was "Reflecting on the Art Fair".  I am also thinking about shadowing out the two people at the table so that they are not so distinct.  

I also don't like that the flowers are too evenly spaced and almost all the same size.  Fairly easy to correct.

  1. Hi Ginny - Love this, but... you are correct that the flowers are two evenly spaced and also the people should be more indistinct! I think the tents in the window are fine.
