Re: Watercolor Mare with Colt

You got the idea I was talking about on your other post. Now, push it more. Remember lights next to darks and darks next to lights add more punch thereby creating the illusion of three dimensionality.

Re: White Mare with Fillie

Nice sedate painting. Everything pretty much appears to be proportionate. Personally, I would like to see more punch to it in regards to color and intensify the contrast. Push the blues bluer, the greens greener, etc. Push the shadows deeper dark. It is to timid making me believe you are not sure of...

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good afternoon. I am done for today. Maybe more tomorrow. Don't know. Pushed it today. A little more than 6 hours on this today and I am satisfied so far. Moving on. Two more progress posts.

Re: Newest Painting...Dolphins

Yes. Leave it alone. We all know that the hardest part of painting is knowing when to quit. Of course you know you got one five vote coming if you enter it.

Good afternoon Joseph. Enter this in the current animals contest. Everything is just right. It is a contender.

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning again. Thought I would do this update post before I forget some of my thoughts about it. This one seemed to demand "old school" methods of blocking in the darks first and then adding lighter planes. Blending will come in at the final form stages. Maybe. Although most probably ...

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning. While it is possible that I may further fine tune Gaia, it is unlikely. On to Hestia. There are five posted updates on this entry.

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Well, things just clicked. Less work than I expected. Gaia is finished. Now on to Hestia. There are three posts on this comment entry. Observations and critiques are welcome of course.

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning. Yesterday was a stay at home day resting and with sister to sister stuff. Had time to paint. There are five posts today. Got a lot done. You know, that Richeson flesh tone oil paint is really good for laying down a base coat letting it dry for a couple of days and then using it as the ...

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Thanks Joe. It looks like this one is going to be a very long post. Didn't think about that when I started because I wanted all four to stay together. Hope that doesn't cause any problems.

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning. I got to work a couple of hours yesterday. I got tired of not seeing her. So I started painting the face. I will come back to the hair later. There are three posts today.

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning. Got some more done yesterday. Wife and sister-in-law are slowing down on the run around wanting to see things. Now spending time visiting and talking. Gives me time to exit stage left, so to speak. I darkened the dark parts of the hair a little more. Still have to work on the red highl...

Re: Greek Goddess's of Air Earth Fire and Water

Good morning. Got some time to work before my wife and sister-in-law got up. These are the posts. Hair is a little to red and still needs more work before I am satisfied before I deal with any hair highlights. The base flesh tone may be a little difficult to notice, so the viewer will really have to...

Re: Latest Painting (nudity warning)

Good morning Joseph. It is not nice to have some old photos laying around? Never know when one or more can be of use at a future date. Thanks for sharing. I can see the hands and light around the form in the photo as the influence in your painting. I understand your perception about the blue in the ...

Good morning. Had enough time yesterday to do some more painting. So, I laid in the dark shadows of the hair and worked on the feathered ear decorations. There are three posts today.

Re: Latest Painting (nudity warning)

Nice painting of course. Now to some of the elements. I like how you succeeded in making the human form appear to actually be touching the rock with the use of the darker shading on both arms. The highlighting on the face and chest/breast area is superb in supporting the illusion of three dimensions...

Re: Fixed but still not happy

Nice job Joseph Bellofatto. I agree with the need to add color focusing the attention to the center of the canvas. I see you also sharpened the rocks as I had suggested. Kind of leads the viewer into the painting. However, I would not add some warm colors to the greenery. I would darken the base par...

Re: Say something about my painting~

I respectfully disagree with Joseph Bellofatto's critic about it needing something. Not all paintings need to make a statement or possess the power of attraction. Some simply need to be a gentle, kind reminder of simple beauty that is around us all the time if we only take the time to see it. Partic...
