Nice colurs but the bottom half needs more work.

I'm going to disagree a bit with Doug....I like the vignette look and think the bold colors and strokes carry the painting. Any more work on it (because of the boldness) would be overworking the painting. I really like the bold colors and the Hopi-style marks remind me of an extremely hot day in the desert!

I really like it as it is. Good work!

Very nice composition. I like the way the dark flows through it - and I agree with Doug, the bottom needs more work. Maybe a dark area under the blue vertical to bring the viewer back through the painting.

Great wet work, lovely value contrasts, too. You've created some nice tension with the red and green next to each other, but not too much- subtle. Good work.

I like the abstract quality to this, it leaves some to the imagination. Perhaps just a little more work on the bottom.
