Re: Women power

I'm not sure what she is doing...is she working the field? If so, you may need to define the movement a little, example, fingers holding the straw...if that's what that is. Just my opinion, nothing more.

Re: Women power

I like the composition and the movement within the piece. I think the proportions of the arm holding the reeds is a bit off and the bottom of the piece it looks like you needed to fill it up so plugged in some short reeds...doesn't seem to flow with the other elegantly long reeds and figure..makes me want to crop the bottom off. I also wish the mountains on the left were as defined as those on the right, or just work on the storm clouds a bit more to define them...Overall I do really like it!

Re: Women power

I like this. The dynamics indicated by the the sloping growth (nicely halted by the upright growth at the left), the line of the body and the sweeping overall of the swath in her hand suggests to me the energy she is really putting into the threshing of the grain. Some women have it tough!
An attractive rural statement.

Re: Women power

I like it, there is a lot of drama in this picture - helped by your fluid proportions.
Here I disagree with moebean, van Gogh's anatomy wouldn't always withstand criticism, but it did add drama - take a look at The sower with sickle

Two changes I would consider are 1) to introduce a little more shadow around her left knee* - on the inside of her thigh, her shin, and waist. This will throw the knee forward and add drama, and 2) add a little shade to the left of the central cloud, to reinforce the suggestion that the sun is to the top right of the picture, and to send the cloud back behind the picture. Neither change is essential, and if attempted, should be subtle.

*The foreshortened knee on the right of the picture
