Missing Naples

Here's a painting I did several years ago of the entrance to the Naples Pier. 

 Look for ways to interrupt straight lines or boring rectangles.  It could be a tree trunk, a bench, a railing or a person. 

Also you can simplify tree foliage by using the silhouette technique to describe it rather than including every leaf or frond.  Too many textures in too many places confuse the viewers.  They can't tell what your focal point is. 

Happy Daylight Savings Time!
