This is a watercolor that I just finished. It was painted on 140lb cold press paper size is 11x14. I would like to enter it in our local art exhibit. A critique of this painting would be appreciated. What do you think of the composition? Thanks

I love the color, and the composition of the painting. I may be late with my comment for your entry. I took a sketching class with Glenn Vilppu on location, and he mentioned to one of our fellow students to add some water to the sketch of fishes in a pond. What do you think?

a stopper
by: Vic UK

A quite stunning piece, as soon as you see it your attention is grabbed. Its one of those paintings that you see in exhibits that after drifting past a dozen other pieces it makes you stop and look. Id love this on my wall.

Innocence
by: Nicolle

Hi Joey,

Your painting is very touching. It is fresh with the quality of innocence so needed today in the world we are living in, it is well composed, with a good combination and choice of colors.

I just love it and yes, i would have it at home.
So go for it.

Hello Joey,

I think your painting is lovely. You will do well if you enter it in your art exhibit. The triangular composition of the koi is stable but exciting, especially with your use of complimentary colors of the main subjects with the soft muted blues of the background. The brighter redish-orange of the central koi draws the viewer's attention to this fish as your focal point. Your craftsmanship is skillful as well. Overall, if I were to judge your entry, you would do quite well. Congrats!

Good Work
by: Kashish Jain

i love this painting.......the composition is good, as it creates a prominent focal point, which is indeed very important. Also, the juxtaposition of the bright colors of the fishes as opposed to the subtle, almost somewhat mono-tone background is very nice.. Keep up the good work!

I like this painting alot. The colours work great together and I like your composition. Its a different angle than you would normally view fish so that makes it interesting. Go ahead and exhibit your painting - I'm sure you'll sell it!
