    An amateur by confession, never formally trained, have been trying artrage for sometime. Submitting my first attempt. Honest opinions from learned artists.

    There are a lot of really nice things going on here. Nice use of light and dark, nice understanding of shadows and highlights. Your color blending looks natural and well done.

    Sir, I used oil brush, palette knife, crayons and occasional mark pens. Tried water color, but don't know how to mix colors by dripping down in artrage.

    Sir, you got it right! Even I was thinking the same at the end! I know, I need to be more patient (as I am with my patients) Thanks for your observation!

    I'm thinking that you are very close. You can add colors on to what you have. You have a very good foundation. Many painters start with an under-painting in an earth tone like sepia or raw sienna or burnt sienna or blue. Anyway, the point is that they use that to get their values worked out and then they start putting in colors that match the exact values of the foundation under-painting. So with what you have already done, you can use a copy as the under-painting. Then you can put in an accent color here and there, or you can push one portion to a harmonious color, and in the end you could have a very vital painting.

    Don't just stop. You will learn a whole lot about the power of accent colors, and every other color in relation that you put down atop this. Remember, you can undo anything you put down. You can hide and reveal layers on which you try stuff out. It's never been easier to explore color.

    Anyway, don't give up on this one.
