Those are some beautiful artists, but I would prefer a looser crop so that we can see what they are working on. You might consider a wider variety of angles as well. I see the same picture with 4 different people in it; you might consider taking some at a lower angle so that we can see their face, or maybe a shot over the artist's shoulder looking at the pastels from their point of view.

Thanks for the feedback. Would something like this work better ?

Lighting is hard in a situation like that. Your first picture looks underexposed while the second looks over exposed. I would also have liked to see a wider angle. You seem to have quite a set from that location.

I agree the crops are too tight. To me this is a series of images of women, not street art.

That's not a complaint either

The biggest problem I encountered when doing these were the people standing around. I tried to cut them out as much as I could. Or do you think it would have been better having them in. I did get shots of the artwork alone as well here are a few.
