    I am in an Oil Painting I class at my college and my professor has been telling me that my compositions lead him out of the picture plane, and they don't keep the viewer inside the piece. I'm not sure how to remedy this. Maybe I shouldn't crop things in so close? I'm not sure if it's the composition or just the marks I use to render my forms. He said this in drawing too, so I've enclosed some examples. Anyone have any advice?

    When painting you have to set a objective what you want to show to the viewer. This can't send any picture. It is just pure shading.
