I love it!
glad you painted it.
the textured medium looks very active and ripples with great confidence and clarity between light and dark colored areas.

it is very exciting when major color shifts occur, as between the hanger the shirt and the wall.

there are several good things going on here
thr color combo is good, black, white and a rich butterscotch,
the dark light pattern is good, dark, medium and light,
the shadows on the shirt are done in a very subtle way, with pretty pastel colors,
this prettiness is emphasized and set aside by the rich butterscotch,
then it is punched home by the very dark hanger
to increase what is already interesting ingedients, the shirt is on an angle,
the open edges reinforce the angle
furtherering these interesting aspects are the placement with the hanger and the bottom of the shirt going off the page,
obviously its easier to see the structure in this painting brecause there are few objects,
the number of elements to consider is larger than the number of the objects
the commissioned horse with girl does not lend itself to such an analysis,
but in a commission someone else makes the decisions

Thanks for the critique. I hear you about the comission. The horse and girl is somewhat a dissapointement to me. I feel very restricted by the comission.

There has to be a way to be retain the freedom of your style and still please the client.

ja wohl!

I dig this, unusual composition and excellent handling of the colors and medium.

Course, if I painted my clothes, they'd have to be in a pile on the floor, but I can appreciate hangers! lol

I'm dornberg 100%

LOL, the pile may make a good composition - can't wait to see it.
