I'm wondering if he said he didn't like the clouds perhaps because, at least from my perspective, it is much less common to see clouds in an Arabian sky than it is where most of us live? Just a thought. No clouds gives more of a "hot sweltering Arabian desert" appearance.

For the record, I think your clouds were awesome. :(

I was thinking that too because I really can't see anything wrong with them other than that they may seem out of place in a desert sky

I think you both are right about the clouds being out of place in a desert scene. Although the clouds are pretty dramatic, the mood will have more of a dry/sweltering look without them. And that's probably important for the overall feel of the painting. That hadn't occurred to me before...

As an update: I haven't started the painting on the new canvas yet. Kinda dragging my feet to see if I hear back from him that he's changed his mind.
I just got my clean, new canvas in the mail today (I made sure to inspect it THOROUGHLY this time) and I'm thinking I'll begin working on it tomorrow. So I'll see if I can get new pics then :)

Does he not like the condition of the canvas or just the background? Could you perhaps just paint over the clouds?

Gorgeous work. I really like the exaggerated facial features, even if it is a bit caricature-ish. I think it gives the figures a very stylized, artistic effect. If you look at 18th and 19th century paintings, a lot of the equines have exaggerated anatomy. I love that style. Keep up the great work!
