    Can't really give an answer about your image vs the competition without seeing the competition but there's quite a lot of reasons why this isn't great.

    I think what's hurting this piece are the values - it's a pretty complex painting with lots going on but the value range you've picked for yourself is quite narrow - midrange to bright which has...

    I wonder if you're getting confused by some of the terminology. The term values is thrown around a lot but really all it means is using light or dark in a painting to describe 3D form. The act of...
