Hi guys,

I'm new to this forum but have started painting recently and need some advice. I have always been creative and have decided I'd like to eventually sell my work on Etsy. I've been doing an abstract piece lately but feel a bit empty, like its missing something. The piece is called 'love flows'. I'd like your opinions on what it needs and what it's missing really..

Thanks in advance!

Maria

Welcome to the forum. I love the color and texture of your painting. I think I would full up the canvas more if it were mine. Everyone has different tastes and some think less is better but my paintings tend to be more cluttered.

Thank you for your response Terry :) I appreciate it. Oh, yes I haven't finished yet I do intend to fill the whole canvas but I'm just wondering if it will look bland if the whole canvas is painted that way?

Thanks again!

Fill the empty space with a poem.

I know zilch about painting, but my thought is it needs more light colors throughout it. Just seems like it would flow more. :biggrin::biggrin:

Hi Dick,

Yes something like that all over the canvas, which is why I'm wondering if it would be missing something..

I havent been painting long but something I learned to do with my photography was look at an image in black and white and see if you have enough value range. I would add some darker and lighter colors. you could test it on a piece of paper before committing to doing it on your canvas.

By now I would think you've done some more on this, care to share it?
