Garden Wendy


Dear Matt,

To change a little bit and in order not to forget about composition and perspective, I painted a garden. I worked a long time on it (maybe too long? the last two weeks in fact) and have several questions.

Is the rule of thirds applicable to the square format ?

I hesitated to paint the window or not, but I wanted to add perspective and an interior/exterior feeling. Does it work ?

At some point I got rid of the light on the floor in the foreground and then put it back. What do you think?

And as usual I feel something is missing but I don’t know what it is. Is there too much chroma exverywhere ? Should I have used tinted greys and where ? 

Thanks for your critique and don’t hesitate to be harsch 🙂
