As I mentioned in my last blog, my critique group was meeting. I had only 2 paintings to take and I knew Rodeo Nights had a lot of problems. I got a lot of helpful ideas to improve much of what needed fixing. I also got some good ideas from my readers. So here is the before and after.

Most of the improvement was in the bottom of the painting, eliminating the "pear shape."
The floral painting had minor adjustments. Can you find them?
