What I noticed in the past few years of painting or any type of art in general is that I was never satisfied with my art. I finally found out the secret to art. The secret is to exaggerate your art. Not exaggerating the content but the colors. Once you have exaggerate the colors you'll notice the difference and how rich the painting becomes. In the past I always ended up painting my paintings over with more paint because it was dull, but when I exaggerate and intensify the colors the image just pops right out at you.
