Artwork by Jackie Hogan

This is an Oil Painting I recently finished as a present for my mother. She recently moved to another house and chose “Tango” as a theme for my gift to her.

I would be most grateful for any critique you might offer to help me do better.

Feedback from Vladimir London, Drawing Academy Tutor

Dear Jackie,

Many thanks for your artwork. I like it very much. The composition is very dynamic, yet balanced. The colors create tension and passion.

There are also several golden proportions in your painting:


There is only one thing you might want to improve – include a shadow cast under the male dancer’s right foot. It will root this figure firmly on the ground.

To your creative success,
