Neon night

Neon night

Good free brushstrokes and I like the spatterings of white and red paint. The effects on the right hand side of the image are very effective - lights/shadows etc. It's a good, interesting painting with drama. Maybe a diagonal would help the composition slightly and give more focus/perspective to the main area of interest? Personally I don't worry about my style, I just paint what I feel about the subject and whether I want to try something new etc. The variety in your portfolio is part of its strength.

It's an excellent painting Helen, to me, it lacks a main focal point, my eye is not settling on any area, How about introducing a neon sign, 'Cabaret Night' or whatever. Good work though.

Thank you Pat and Alan for your helpful advice.

This is very good as it stands and I wouldn't add more than maybe a point of interest or focal point.

I'm not a huge fan of abstract work Helen but I was immediately drawn to this.....I love it!!

Very interesting and well painted.

Thank you Derek and Michael. Fiona it's a good feeling to have such a reaction, thank you.

A stunning piece, Helen. So much vitality in the scene, with a wonderful range of tones, shapes and lines. Superb!

Superb - don't touch it Helen - RESIST

Thanks a lot Seok and Michael.
