When Disaster Strikes

Well, the Trimet picture was pretty much a disaster. Initially I liked how it was turning out with all the geometric shapes and the long shadows. But the train never really had the three dimensional look of a train (unlike the other three trains I've painted) and feedback I was getting told me I wasn't even getting the sense that the train was outside. I showed it to my teacher who then suggested some darker colors at the top of the train (which made it worse). Although somewhat embarrassed to show it, here it is.
