On first look, I just think it is adorable and colorful. I am reading others comments and looking more carefully. It is quite a contrast between the rough and the graphic but, I wonder how it would look if you mixed them together a bit more. Like the shadow under her. That rough little bit of purple on the shadow. What if you added just a touch of the rougher texture into the smooth more graphic portions? Well, actually you kind of did with the leaves. I guess if it were just a bit less drastically different? I think the colors look good otherwise. I always love your work :-)

RE: What is your favorite part of SVS and what can we do better?
I think it would be nice to have a couple more classes that go with the writing side of things-maybe by someone who is a writer and illustrator.I loved Ann Whitford Paul's class.
RE: What are some unique ways you can apply your illustration skills?
My friend keeps mentioning illustrating family history stories. I do love family history but feel overwhelmed with it right now :-)

RE: Please help with this composition.
@tessw Ha! Ha! I'm thinking that his body postition is such a reflection of me and my anxiety :-) I am always feeling like I need to get going on something and need to relax more :-) Interesting. I have to go paint in an hour or so and should have this done. I appreciate your input! I think I will need to make it work as him getting up or something unless I can redraw all. Well, I'll see what I can accomplish. Thanks!
Please help with this composition.
I am doing a painting for my watercolor class of Johnny Appleseed. I have been tryign to draw this rough picture and just wanted to know what I can do to make any corrections to the figure. I, as you can see, have been redrawing and doign a lot of erasing.
Can you see any adjustments I could make to the position ? I am especially concerned about the placement of the shoulders (and maybe the back leg? Thanks.!
He is supposed to be really skinny.
