Re: rooftop gardening, cc enjoyed

I like everything about it, accept the top right.. I like the figure, I like the composition , I like the values and the colors, might be just me but the wall in the back competes with the figure, I think neutralizing it on the top right corner would be something to consider. How big is it?

Unusual perspective but very pleasing painting.

I like it! It is simple at first glance, but not so simple when you take in the weighted balance of the whole scene. You did a great job painting the ladies beautiful skirt. Unless my eyes are fooled I see touches of the same color spread out in other places in the scene.

Re: rooftop gardening, cc enjoyed

This is well done. My only critique is with the lettering on the Coca-Cola sign. That logo is so iconic, that a less that perfect re-creation is a distraction. Personally, I tend to make those in the abstract, so that they seem very familiar to the viewer without being too specific.
