Wow, what a nice correction. You really took the crits well and applied what you heard. Congratulations. I for one am impressed.

This is what the strength of WC is, constructive crits, excellent learnign opportunities and even some chit chat. That's why I call WC the best free art college on the web....

Gosh Sam, you really brought this to an excellent finish. Now the bridge is the star and you can fire the window washer. I like this a lot now, great colors for my point of view. Lets see some more now, your on a roll........Lenore

Thanks, you two :) I'm much happier with this than I was to begin with, and that can only be credited to the people who were willing to add their critique, despite the fact that they didn't particularly like the painting as was ;)

Stef! A beautiful transformation. So harmonious. Isn't it interesting how just crisping up the posts on the end of the bridge and that one stroke of red just brings it toward us! And its so pleasing that our minds can pick up on the suggestion of the windows and fill them in. That is always satisfying, when our minds are engaged...marvelous...
