Slight outline would work. Perhaps a subtle black or some other complementing color around your subjects. Maybe the shadow edge or important parts.

This is a really fun painting and I enjoyed it.
I agree with the comment already made, outline work would make your images separate more and would add definition without ruining the style of your painting.
I would be tempted to use a fine point ink pen or marker to outline, it will add a more "cartoon" look to the piece, but it would also allow for definition.
Would love to see what you come up with!

Am not indifferent to the above ideas. When I look at your piece I see the door, window, the red lady and the open sign as drawing the eye. You are correct in noting that's too much. Try covering up the open sign, and you will see what I mean. Then the door or window. Practice determining your center of interest by looking at magazine advertisements. Ads have center of interest down to a"fine" art. But, keep your style, And maybe before totally painting something in, cut out a sillouette and place it around, juxtaposing where you want it. Externally mqnipulqting objects will help you develop your "eye" and eventually you will just 'know' how to develop center of interest. Thanks! quaint tea house.

You bet! It's fun to experiment with where you want to put an object before actually committing." WC is a good place to share your work and develop your art. I like your style. Looking forward to more.
