This is my very first post of my own work! Excuse the photo quality, I am a novice photographer and have never photographed my own work before.  Undecided
If anyone has suggestions or tips for me, I'll love you forever!

Here is "Ang": Original work, acrylic and watercolor on canvas.



And here is "Ang": Enhanced digitally for prints.



(I LOVE comments and criticism!)
Thanks for looking!

This looks like the technique where you take a straw and blow paint or ink across the paper or canvas, and it looks as if you had fun; my only suggestion would be to decide where your focal point is and rework it a bit to enhance that area, something that immediately draws the viewer's eye to it.

It was definitely a lot of fun. My first time ever trying something like that.
I do know what you mean about the focal point (or lack of one- haha). Do you have any suggestions as to what to do with that area?

is the 'ang' from angry?  I like it regardless!  my suggestion for photographing your work is to do it outside on a sunny day. instant great lighting!  and you can do just a grass background or put a white sheet on a car hood or something and have a blank background.  it looks better than it sounds!

Thank you!  Grin

The "Ang" is from both "angry" and "angst"...I couldn't decide which one I felt more at the time. Wink
Although, the whole process was very therapeutic.

A focal point in my point of view is a place that the eye can rest on, it's the one part of the art work that has the most "visual interest" to quote my art teacher.  Basically your artwork is very interesting, but the eye doesn't have anywhere to go, so you need to figure out what your focal point is to capture the viewers attention, add variation and enhance the artwork.  Choose a section of your artwork preferably not  anywhere in the center (that will make the work too static) and rework that area to add even more interest to the piece.
