    Learning to Paint

    I'm not sure about the composition here. I keep thinking I wish that lamp was little further left. Let me hear your comments!

    Hi Brian,

    I see what you mean, there is just a bit too much space to left of the lamp isn't there?

    There are a few other things that distract my attention though;
    the green thing on left
    blue folders in background
    the dark line in centre lower third
    not being able to see quite as much of the drawing as I'd like to

    Nice idea, good composition of artist, good DoF and focus, but with some room for improvements.
    Beware moving the lamp may lose the necessary highlight on artist's forearm.

    Inspiring,

    I guess this is more what I had in mind.
    I wish I could see this BEFORE I stopped taking photos

    Hi Peter,
    I didn't know how much to show - I thought too much would distract. Anyway, this photo wasn't composed well from the start
