Did this painting for my granddaughter. Turned out to be more challenging than originally thought . Was conscious of edges soft vs hard but not sure if desired result achieved . Would be grateful for input . Thanks .
Still interested in constructive views if available . Thanks .
The important thing here is that you captured a memorable image of your Granddaughter, and that is why we create, to bring a smile to someone.
the only thing I would suggest is to think about the positive and negative space of a piece, you simplified the crowd beautifully to draw attention to your GD, I would've liked the piece even more if the focus was entirely on her and given just hints of the other players. Planning your painting with sketches gives you time to focus on composition, and the important parts of the painting.
Thank you ALatorre for your comments . Your response is appreciated and helpful .
