Ug, I wrote a long post defending giving C&C - but then erased it by accident.
Anyway the point was that C&C adds to the experience of a work by getting people to consider it from new angles, or think through the artist’s intentions and techniques more.
Also, if an artist is made to justify their decisions, in the long run they will put more care into their work, I know that having taken some art classes where every piece was critiqued by the group, I learned to think much more about what I wanted to do, and how to accomplish it.
Also, sometimes it’s clear that people need advice to improve their work. Nobody benefits if people refrain from that, even on finished projects. To be clear, it seems like you know what you’re doing, so that doesn’t apply here.
Anyway, this piece is really great, but/and I have one crit, but I guess I’ll save it.
Looking again, the texture work on the wood wall behind the bath is really top-notch, impressive.
