When trying to assess if your painting is working, track the movement of your eye.
Make sure it stays within the painting and isn’t led off the paper.
You want the viewer’s eye to stay in your painting and not have it go to the painting next to it.
Your eye also needs to keep going back to the focal point.
If your eye keeps going to an element that is not the focal point, perhaps some adjustments need to be made.
