GTK programming is much easier and you can get a lot of comprehensive guides on the net to teach you(not that you won't get guides for motif). Most ppl prefer GTK programming as it is very easy for beginners and once you get into it, you don't want out.

Regarding themes, Gtk is themeable and Motif isnt.
