This time your use of value turned out much better but if you are going for realistic value there is still some problems as it would either have to get lighter further away or get darker further away and not be evenly distributed.
Again your use of technique is astounding I love how you used swirly brushstrokes so the viewer can't rest anywhere in the image and has their eyes constantly moving around it.
However, I feel this may be too much movement and it would be nice to have a resting point like maybe the figures in the background if they were darker/stood out and were clearer?
Overall I think you did a great job here as well with your piece and rendering of texture and movement Trés bien. C'est magnifique (sorry my French est mal >.>...I haven't spoken it since Grade 9 about 5 years ago or so XD)
Your french was fine.
Glad to hear that XD
Yes, fairly good for not applying it for five years.
