This painting is by far not finished, but I have run into a serious composition error, that I have no idea how to fix.
Anyone have any suggestions?
thanks :)

My humble opinion ? I don't see anything wrong with the composition of your painting. I suppose this style doesn't make me pay a lot of attention to composition ... I like it !

What do you see as the error?

Thank you both for your responses :)

I think the error is somewhere in the center of the painting, I am not sure if it's too much green, or I have placed the "egg tree" too close to the woman. Something irks me about it though.

you might pull the red up on the left, and a green curvilinear line on the right

Or you could do the reverse, or a dozen other ways, it's just that all the weight is in the middle.

I like this stylized piece. I especially like the color. :clap:
