MY COMMENTS:
I'm trying to stop but really don't like the customer. She seems necessary.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Any feedback is appreciated. I've looked at it too long to see issues so I'll put it aside for a while. However, any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Re: Ice Cream Shop

So, I looked at it in gray scale to check values. I rotated it to look at it upside down. Aside from the fact the customers arm is too long, in my opinion. I think you did a fine job. The issue might be......

I think you did the right thing by getting away from it for awhile.

Re: Ice Cream Shop

Interesting video. It's hard to know when to quit and move on. Thanks for your comments. I wanted the customer's art to help lead the eye to the cashier but I see what you mean. I'll try shortening it and maybe de-emphasizing it.

Very nice painting. If you wish the eye to travel to the cashier, then maybe take down the height of the blue vase? It's almost centered here, maybe lower to about 1/3 and then add some soft greenery that would make the eye travel from customer to cashier.

Re: Ice Cream Shop

Good points. I had not noticed that the vase blocks the movement. It becomes a major distraction and I did not see it. I'll work on it! Thanks!

Re: Ice Cream Shop

I really like this. I do think the customer's arm is way too big in relation to her head, though. There are some nice repetitive elements and good depth. It's pleasant to look at.

Re: Ice Cream Shop

Lovely and lively scene, workers are excellent.

However, I think there is a perspective issue with the counter the customer is leaning to. I am not very experienced, so not sure.

There is a classroom in wetcanvas and the moderator always monitors. You can check with him if there is really a problem. He can draw lines to show you if so, or not.

Here is the thread, it is in classroom of Drawing:
