I see lots of potential here. No need for a new version, just work on this one a bit - maybe more colour and contrast is needed.

I agree that more contrast is needed. You have an overall middle value. It is good to have a dominant value like that, but provide a little light value in areas to make it much more interesting.

I would try a dif composition. If you lightened the toe of the top boot and the top of the other, which are the lightest values, the picture would be much improved. However, that puts focus in the middle of the painting-which usually is not interesting.

I agree that more contrast is needed. The composition is good, but with the right amount of "darks," I think that this could come together quite well. Jim

Well drawn,
Good boots, old ones, some contrasts (light/dark) would make them look "alive' again !
