Frustration

Postby Woodpecker » Sun Aug 17, 2008 2:05 pm

Be honest. I painted this last night. I thought I was through, but I see now that I still have some cleaning up today on edges and what not. I was thinking about putting in a partial wall painting in the upper left. Although, I do like the sparse and lonely setting to go along with her posture. Be
utal, I'm thick skinned and I'm here to get better! Thanks,Kenton

Leave the painting out of it. I also like the lonely setting... it fits with her introverted posture. I would have isolated her within the frame of the canvas in order to totally make her seem surrounded by the emptiness of the canvas, but the figure is rendered beautifully and you have a distinct eye for posture and composition of form. Over all I really like this piece and love what it says in the silences and simplicity of form and background.

Namaste,

Abby

On second look, everything I said before and I also looked at the piece from a distance from my computer and I adore the white line of the baseboard it creates a beautiful horizontal to the vertical pattern in the background and I re-emphasize my desire to see a vertical line of separation on her left side (the right of the piece). Fabulous hips and curves of the real and introverted feminine creature.

Namaste,

Abby

i love it! I feel the emotion
The mere attempt to examine my own confusion would consume volumes.

Thank you for your encouragement and your criticism. I composed her on the right because I thought it gave the image a no where to go feeling. I also liked the idea of busting out of the thirds and golden Ratio rules. Thanks ---Kenton

The figure is beautiful, don't know what you have to clean up, but if it seems a little out of balance, try to darken a little area of the floor...The empty wall space helps create a feeling, so play with tone and shade to put the composition into balance.....maybe a little shadow on the floor....something suptle though, don't over do it.....maybe a line along the left where the wall meets the floor.

I like it. I disagree with abbyjonesart about the positioning, this is better. It makes it look like she's hiding in a corner. I agree that a painting displayed prominently would take away from the loneliness of it, but something peeking into the frame from above would emphasize that she's on the floor, below the usual eye level.
