I like the colors in this.

Don't feel bad.  I have perspective problems, too.

I like this.  Personally, I would remove the figure standing on the road.  This figure looks out of place to me.  Other than that, it has that primitive feel and the colors are lovely.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Cyril this is lovely and I agree with MaryLou about removing the figure on the right.  It seems out of place. I love the palm tree in the foreground.

It may just be that the figure is a bit too large for where it is situated. I am having to use tablet which makes it difficult for me to see properly. So that's just a guess.

Nice colourings.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

This painting has freshness and vigour... but the figure is a giant, perspective-wise. Turn it into a statue perhaps? ::)

Cyril - I think your perspective with the tree, vegetation and houses is spot on...just remove the person and you're good to go!
Cheers,
Sharon

This is charming. Nice earthy colours. The figure is placed on a road. Maybe defining the road a bit more and reducing the figure size could create depth.
