Not every work of art we do meets our expectations.  The image in our head sometimes doesn’t materialize.  So, a ‘what went wrong’ analysis is needed.  Here are some questions to ask.

  • Is the drawing correct?
  • Is there a good composition?
  • Are the hues clear?
  • Is there a dominate color with harmonizing colors?
  • Are warm and cool contrasts used correctly?
  • Are the values and their forms consistently correct?
  • Is the light source evident and consistent?
  • Is their variety in the brushwork?
  • AND is there emotion reflected in the work?
