Good work, Candi. You’ve got that strong light ef­fect in the fore­ground work­ing well and in­ten­si­fied the blues so that the com­ple­men­tary blue/or­ange colour scheme is much more ob­vi­ous. Your brush­work is bold and var­ied and your draw­ing is good, all ex­cept for the win­dow be­ing at odds with the tilt of the build­ing. Beware your back­ground trees kiss­ing the top of the can­vas. If you scoop the shad­ows across the tracks a lit­tle it gives the ap­pear­ance of a dirt or gravel road rather than a flat con­crete. You could af­ford to have a lit­tle more depth in the grass shad­ows and more colour as it’s look­ing a lit­tle chalky at present and the shadow sides of the grass aren’t quite con­nect­ing be­liev­ably to the cast shad­ows on the road. I hope that helps a lit­tle. Good work.
