I saw a picture of a painting in a magazine, and narrowed in on a small area of that painting. With some of my own embellishments this is the result. I can't remember the name of the original painting, or the artist, but working from that picture was a learning experience. Yax http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

It works really well.
besides being a wonderful painting there is a story.
In the story the small figure in the right lowere area has a special role, I guess we will wonder about that since it is a copy of a detail.

I think this is a fine painting! In particular the way the two figures are looking off the left edge of the canvas.

oddly enough the only thing I would change is where you signed it. I would have put my signature in burgandy in the orangest tetrahedron at the very bottom (second shape from the right).

very intriguing shape relationships.

i like the row of dark hair
the row of white collars
the angles of brown and tan
how the green shape relates to the purple
the variation in the size of shapes
there are strong vertical lines too
i think this is well put together
