Re: Red Flowers

Great analogy and story John - Its also important, as an artist, to know WHAT those self-imposed rules are.
Recognize them, and consciously make the decision to free oneself from them, or live within them when creating.

Re: Thinking of going into art. Any suggestions?

its a part of who you are... you can do both, the responsible stuff, and still nurture your creative self. I would say, go for it! Try what you know, what you haven't tried yet.. explore and have fun!!!

Re: Watercolor of a Vemeer

Nicely done portrait... the negative space just behind her neck makes her neck seem a little thin. Did you work from a photo? Really good capture of color and depth on the fabrics.
I would suggest keep going... its looking really good.

Re: Russian Aristocrat Girl

Agree.. your attention to her face and features - lovely... would like to see that balanced out throughout the rest of her. GREAT portrait... and the color choices - very pleasing! Keep going!

Re: 'Faith' - my last work

I too like the contrast and color dynamics... I would like to see a bit more work on the gradient that is happening on the deer splice... this would make it look more connected and complete - rather than one layer above another. All the best.

Re: Sometimes Melancholy

Looking good!! I would slow down on the details and finishing it a bit, and really dial in the high and low tones... be careful not to over shadow the mouth area so it doesn't look like a muzzle. remember there too, is highs and lows - the divot just under the nose that creates the bow in the upper ...

Re: Desert Sunset critique

Do you have a reference photo? I like it, but would like to see more upward radiance... usually when sun sets, there is a intensity. To me this calm glow you have here reminds me more of a sunrise... equally lovely.. but different, just the same. Hope that helps.

Re: Sometimes Melancholy

good start - color blocking is good... watch the neck & shoulder proportions. Keep going - cant wait to see where you take it!

Re: Italian Girl in Tradtiional Costume

Hi Jenn, the photo I took does not show her clothing well at all... clearly much darker than the original painting. I wish I was a better photographer but for now I just use my cell. Thank you for your advice! I actually do not mind that the black of her clothes meld into the background, my comment...

Re: Colors of the Day

Great choice of colors, and texture. Your method of application paid off in this one... really brings the element of life.. would love to see how that translates in a seascape that is turbulent and stormy.... :)

Re: Let the Games Begin II

Hi Cristo - for your painting 'Pointed" I have to say I have stared at this for some time... I am not per ce, a huge fan of abstracts - moreso drawn to surrealism. But I have to compliment you on your choices of color in this one... Not sure I am on board to the thought process you described - ...
