    Pom portrait

    I'm not too sure about the background color, but I'm pretty satisfied with how everything else looks in this portrait. Keeping in mind that this is watercolors and gouache, would you change anything?

    bg color is a bit bright/saturated and comes forward because of that.
    I'd try to define a clearer lightsource for the dog and do some shading for a bit of depth.

    The bg is too bright. The blue is nice it complements with the pup which is orangish but just tone down the blue.

    I wouldnt say the blue is too bright but a little less saturated would be nice the colors start "vibrating" when you have complete compliments next to each other and very saturated. Also I dont know if thats just me but the dogs head seems a bit too far to the left making his neck twisted but that could just be the fur.

    this goes along with the above comments, in that the bg does jump out at you and much of the image is in the same tonal value (if you pop it into grayscale you can see) which makes it all look flat. since it looks like you're going for some realism here, try using your color and value to bring the dog forward (esp the areas of focus, like the face) and make the background recede.

    The blue has as much texture as the dogs fur and it is distracting. Also, in the dog's form, it is kindof hard to see the dog gesture. ie. is it facing toward us or away and looking over it's shoulder. Not sure if it is fixable at this stage, but it is something to look out for.
