Hey, I need some advice here. I don't have much experience dealing with backgrounds, and I feel kind of stumped on this one. What I feel like I'm stuck on is the color and the lighting. I have problems with composition as well. This one is fine, but there's nothing particularly exciting about it.
The painting has gone through a few revisions. I'm going to post a few versions just so some have an idea what I have may tried, what didn't work.
Um, I don't have super high expectations for this painting, but it's been something I'm practicing on. It's more of a personal work and is one of a few paintings that I have been working on over the long term. I want to push myself to address interest. I've been practicing to make my work more polished hence why I have a paintings. Hopefully I will get to the point I do more professional like work and churning out interesting compositions and the like won't be so difficult... I'm still trying to learn to paint what it is I actually like to paint.
Don't know if that's important, but I just put it out there.
Thanks in advance!
