I thought this would be a good example to demonstrate when cropping makes for a better painting. The full painting below bothered me. I thought it a little blah. I decided the foreground area was unimportant to the subject of the watercolor, which was the reflection of light on the sea in the distance. I decided to crop it on my computer to see if it is an improvement. What do you think? I have not actually cut the painting yet - but I am leaning towards the crop.
