I like your use of the primary colours. I always have a problem with lines that end in a corner, it always makes me ask if this is compositionally correct?

if by corner you mean the corner of the paper, it's because the sheet is larger than my scanner and thus I had to crop it

Can you tell me what medium you were using? The colors are great and lots of back and forth movement in the shapes.

pastels

Pastels is a lovely medium and not often used for abstract work. I would suggest that you try to vary your mark making and don't blend too much as this kills the lovely shimmering effect you get with light bouncing off the irregular pastel particles.

What did you intend your focal point to be in this work?

Yeah, it's hard for me not to blend sometimes ;) The intended focal point is the red lines, mostly the two in the middle.

Hmmm,,, I find myself looking at the dark blue triangle near the center.

One thing you might want to consider is selectively defining and sharpening edges where you want the viewer to focus.

umm, could you be a bit more constructive in your criticism than "yawn" next time?
