I need your advises in order to finish this painting. I'm not able in figurative paintings, but i had to do this in my w/c class and now I want to end it well.
This is a boy selling spices, the background and the dress (and more other!) have to be agjusted.
I'm waiting!!! ;)

It's hard to tell....do you have a reference photo?

my teacher has it. i'm not able (nor like) beeing to aderent to the photos...
I'd think to add some light cobalt glaze in the righ side, in order to ouline better the boy, and to add red to the dress. can work?

ciao, rapolina.

I'll be interested to see how you finish this painting... Until Gilberte mentioned, I couldn't quite distinguish what I was seeing... I see two boys, as well!!!

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/17-Apr-2003/19462-headache.gif This seems a very personnal vision out of your fantasy.

Nice colors nevertheless.

what about adding a violet (indigo + red) spot and a cadnium yellow one ?

RaPOLINa, yes, try the light blue glaze.
For the dark parts of the dress, mix the red you are using with just a bit of the brown, to make a little darker red. Then, put this color under the arms to separate boy chest from the lighter arm.
Keep going, figures is hard but you can do it.
