Thanks I really appreciate the help. I added more shadow to the left side under his outstretched arm. After seeing it posted I thought it need more.

Here is another I am trying to finish to enter into a show. What do you think I need to do to this one? I have lifted the color from the eye. I felt it is too flat here.

I don't think you need to do a thing. It is awesome. The colors are great and it has a lot of interest. Very strong.

great work,
Joe

Thanks. I was concerned about the focal point but I guess the red is enough to distract from the one larger area of white.

I really do appreciate your comments

The splash of red is just enough in my opinion. I am a big fan of monochromatic paintings with a focal area of a different color to
ing it all out. Not that your painting is monochromatic, just comparing. Parabola (from these forums) does that a lot in his work.

best regards,
Joe

Probably it's just me, but it wasn't obvious to me right away what the painting is about. But then I realized it was a bird (swan, goose?still not sure :) ) and I liked it a lot. The colours are beautiful!

The bird is actually a sandcrane. I am thinking of titleing it "Hiding Out" What do you think? I dislike titleing I think it sometimes is a deterent. You know, too cute, to directive, too descriptive, not big enough etc.

I agree about the naming of your work. If you are going to name it,
keep it pretty general, like 'Bird' or something like that.
I do think your painting is one of the loveliest I've seen in quite
some time. Break a

Re: New Painting - naming

Postby DeDeSorensen » Mon Jan 29, 2007 11:30 am

I would advise against generic naming of your paintings for a few reasons. Descriptive titles appeal to buyers, make works easier to categorize for recordkeeping, and aid in publicity. Just my two cents.

P. S.: I love your painting ... its stunning!!
