    A very intriguing combination of establishing flat graphic shapes and patterning them with colors. Intriguing style. Very pleasant because you do get the whole idea across and you create a gem-like decorative element as well. Very original and attractive style you're heading to. Good work!

    Your use of vivid colors in each of your paintings is especially pleasing. I am studying your works to try to learn some pointers about your color composition.

    If you are interested in everything being sort of flat and creating a 2D composition, this is good, painting all the browns the same way and so forth.

    If you are interested in creating the illusion of depth, you would vary the values and the colors somewhat. All depends on how emphatic you want to make the feeling of distance and how far you can push it without it becoming unbelievable. Mechanical things often give perspective which also shows distance. Organic things often do not have that automatically. So we use other things.

    Also, darks tend to get lighter as they recede. In addition, normally the amount of detail in the foreground would be more articulate.

    Nice progress.

    Awesome!!!!!!

    So much more interesting, wouldn't you say? I feel drawn into the picture, and the variety of colors and so forth make it all the more compelling. Very successful! Bravo!

    Without a doubt you got the idea. And of course the principles can be used in any number of situations in which you want to enhance the space. Also you are doing so very cool things like changing your colors while keeping the values close in the background which is really good painting. And of course that makes the detailing and specific paint strokes in the closer areas all the more interesting -- because there's a relation between the kinds of things you're doing. It's like having a broad vocabulary for an orator. It's just better for leading the audience.
