After the ArtOrder challenge closed one of the judges, illustrator and art instructor Lars Grant-Westhttp://www.larsgrantwest.com/, took the time to comment and critique each entry. I took what he had to say about my piece and did my best to apply his comments to taking this painting further. I’m much happier with it at this point then I was before. Who would have thought that having a professional art instructor give you advice would lead to better work? There should be an industry of people who offer their experience to help others improve skills and increase knowledge. We’ll call them ‘teachers’ because they teach. Thank you Mr. Grant-West.
