Nice start! I have the following comments to pass along:
1. Generally, you should not divide a painting equally between two sections, like you have 1/2 red and 1/2 blue. Unequal areas tend to be more pleasing. You also have 1/2 warm and 1/2 cool. A painting works better if it appears mostly cool or mostly warm, but not evenly divided.
2. You should move the color around, put some blue in the red areas and red in the blue areas. This makes the painting more pleasant to the eye.
3. There is no clear center of interest. The red rectangle at bottom center does not appear "attractive" enough to be a center of interest as it has less chroma than the larger areas.
4. The colors appear to be right out of the paint tube, with no mixing. Paintings are more interesting if the colors change a bit, e.g from a warm red to a cool red.
5. Value changes - from light to dark also help. Your painting is mostly midvalue.
Vale mas una gota de verdad que un mar de mentiras.
