This is my original painting of "Fred the Fierce".
This is test1 with one window.
This is test2 with no windows. I wasn't that happy with Fred but I wasn't sure why. Now i think it is the background. Once again I have broken the rule of relying too heavily on a reference photo. But I was trying to do something different with the background. I think the three windows are too overpowering. I kinda like the offset one window. I would appreciate your opinions and why.
Thank heaven for photo repair so that I can play with this on the computer before I actually repaint it.
