Today I've paid a visit to a local painting course run by the municipality. Would like to share an impression of mine. Critics are welcome as ever!

If you could have eliminated some of clutter of chairs in the foreground and carts etc in the back I think would improve this shop considerably.

Also, white balance seems off.

err why?? This is a studio area. And anyone who has ever been in a studio knows full well they are full of clutter. Actually this shot could use even more clutter and mess.

Bahadir, mate I reckon this would make a good B&W conversion also. Give it a try and chuck it up.
Nice painting too. quite like it.

Hi, Tigger! Maybe chair details may not be very preferable ones to include in the image but believe me they were functioning as tables for paints, various solvent bottles, pieces of fabrics,etc. I wish I had emphasized their role! And for the white balance you're right.I did it badly. Because my camera is blue biased, I avoid Auto. But again I could not find anything truely white there and simply set the white balance to cloudy so as to achieve lively colours at least! Thank you for your valuable thoughts:-)

Dear, Ollie. Ateliers are great places where time has no logic..aren't they? In fact this studio was neater than I expected for they were using this place which was the upper storey of a large shopping mall, just temporarily. Happily their instructor you see sitting in the corner giving directions invited me to her atelier for sth more real!
Anyway, I'll keep your advise about B&W version. And thanks for the encouragement :-)
