Re: I'm new and would like some feedback

I think all of your pieces are great - I'm not a fan of nudes, though, because I'm more focused on the selling aspect and in my experience nudes just don't sell... But you've got a lot of talent, I can see that. I agree that moving the person a little to the right would've been a good move, but then again, I like that the background is evenly divided between the blue and the yellow/white. The person just takes up a lot of space, so the bird looks like of like an afterthought. But a good afterthought - I struggle with any animal but a dog!

As for finishing it off, I agree with Amigone. Add something on the right, but keep it small. You don't want to make the painting look junky. When it looks decent, STOP. When I keep going and going with the details, that's when it starts to look... odd... haha.

Re: I'm new and would like some feedback

Thank you for all the wonderful feedback!

You are right, I get a lot of compliments on the rainbow nude series, but no one ever interested in buying them. I did have some prints made for booth I had and there were some of them stolen. It never feels good to be stolen from, but it was a compliment they wanted them so badly.
It's funny you say that about a dog... origionally, I was going to try and paint a bulldog in the place of the pheonix.
I'll definately take the advice for adding something- but not too much- to the right. As soon as it comes to me.
