The creases and overall shadows of the clothes look well-done, and the anti-war message is laudable. But I do think there is too much negative space as far as the sky in concerned. Keep it up!
I see a red door, and I want it painted black.
Hi cbor47Are you ok with critique or do you prefer not?
Two suggestions.The general value of the painting seems a little too light and greyed out. This causes the figure to seem a little bit disconnected from the ground. It also means the creases on the uniform look like white lines.I increased the black curve in Snapseed to give an indication of what it might look like. This would allow you more values of green for the creases and highlights.Then again it might just be a poor photo of you painting.The second suggestion is to play with the size and location of the items. At the moment the helicopters, pallet and bag are small and / or isolated. Increasing the size and / or overlapping elements would help create a unified scene.I've enjoyed your previous pieces, especially the kingfisher, and you definitely have great skills. I wondered if this was a piece solely from your imagination, leading to the value and composition concerns.
