I see.
I read a tutorial by danielh68 about adding texture to your paintings which use similar methods. I did this in artrage however and that piece of software is basically a piece of paper and a brush - which is fine in most situations...
The mailman will deliver a copy of painterIX some time this or next week so these shortcomings of mine will change soon.
*fingers crossed*

I think what I can say already, though you say yours is not finished yet, is that I was still too reluctant to let go for the deafening deep blue on the right side, because I liked the contrast so much.
Also, I seem to have completely neglected perspective...!

These two things I can fairly easily add. I think this alone will help. Also I started on the other dept/distance study.
You know, I found that repeated pigheaded and stubborn finger exercise will eventually hammer things home to me...

That is the things you say will not be written onto water. I guess you know that I appreciate your efforts very much?

I am. Really. I subscribed to this thing - so mozilla is actually going to tell me when replies pour in. Do it whenever you like.

Take your time...

Yeah, but as we see here I can also be a thickheaded one. Eventually, the whole anatomy forum community will tune in to "the daily depth", wondering:
"you think he'll graps the basic concepts today?"
"nah, much too soon."
"I heard they got him private tuition..."
"Won't do no good. He'll never get it."

added some perspective, further softening and desaturation to the sunflower.

introducing another character sketch which makes use of (lousy) foreshortening, desaturation, soft and hard edges and a bikini...
