Art critique

Along with comments what about suggestions on how to improve a piece of art? I am a beginner and would like input from the artists with more experience.

I have seen the idea of art critique used on other sites and it is more of a pain than a help. There are better sources for learning like studying, reading and taking classes in real time. However, there does seem to be a shortage of affordable art and craft learning opportunities around in real life (non-cyber) time,

Sometimes it's very nice and helpful but I've found some who take offense and do not want help on their work.

You are the exception to the rule my friend and you will improve because of your terrific attitude.

Thanks for input. Makes sense that people could be offended.

Michael, I would like (maybe? lol) helpful critique on my work also.

However, as Joanie pointed out I may get offended. But, only if the person doing the "critiquing" was more rude or untactful (word?) than helpful.

You are right, Vincent there is a shortage of affordable learning opportunities off the computer. As I self taught beginner myself, I have found this out.

When i first suggested it, i was thinking people who have more experience might give suggestions on improvement rather than being critical? Make sense?

Sure, Michael, it does make sense. That is what I hope for, also : )
