It could be worse, but it's still a mess, right? Almost every artist runs into problems like this sometimes, so I wanted to show how to sort through a flawed and complicated composition.
I took the picture to this point during the workshop:
Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to do more than push the values and colors around. I've spent a couple hours on it since then, trying to take it where I thought it should go. There is one thing still bothering me, but I can't figure out how to fix it without damaging the theme and integrity of the picture.
|A stronger composition? Maybe, but I still like most things better in the other one.|
Thanks to all the people who came to the workshop and made me feel welcome in Russia. It was fun!
