Grandma and Her soldiers

Postby krysta11 » Tue Mar 24, 2009 4:22 am

Hello everybody,

I am working very hard on this unique,historical portrait of Grandma from Bartoszyce, Poland. She is known by many, many priests, who during the communists power were forced to join the army . Clerics- soldiers always felt very welcome to Her home. She was called by them Grandma Clericka .
Grandma from Bartoszyce was a very wonderful woman.

I have some more work to do here. Just wanted to share my new painting with you.
Thanks a lot for comments and suggestions. Do not look at hands. They are not done yet.

Krysta

Hi Krysta
I have looked at this piece several times and have just a few suggestions. I would make the
own around the door all the same size. The left side is somewhat larger. The man on the left is almost perfect but the man in green looks rather flat...lacks depth. I see that you have tried to make him look more real but needs just a little more work. Grandma looks pretty good.... really!!! Maybe just a little "squatt" for lack of a better term...lol!! Its a lovely story and you've capture the feel wonderfully and the expressions of the people in this piece show happiness ....well done. But I really feel you could go further with this piece to make it outstanding!!!!

Wonderful painting! You can always tell when a piece of art has a real story behind it - there's more life in it. I wish I had a story like that in my family! You must be proud.

Hello Linda,

Thank you my friend for all your suggestions. I am still working on this piece and also can see a lot of mistakes I have done. I will use your help for sure. Thank you darling.

I have done some changes but still it is not finished.

Dear Rich,

Thank you very much. I am still working on my master piece

:lol: :lol: . Not much left to be done. I feel very frustrated when I am doing hands. Big job. :x

My dear Barb,

Thank God you are back. I was mising your comments very much.
Thanks a lot for your support.

krysta




:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Linda I am laughing and you know why?????

You are a good artist- carpenter. You fixed my door. It was the first time I painted door, priest and soldiers. :lol: :lol:
You helped me a lot, girl. I did everything you told me to do. Thank you !

I hope it is much , much better now. I like this painting for many reasons. I am a bit sad because we have a very bad weather and my image is not clear. Original looks much better.

Love you all

krysta

LOL Krysta...you made me laugh!!! I was afraid I was being to critical and I wasn't trying to be. Hands are hard to do and like I told you before, look at your hands or someone else's for comparison and it may take a very small detail
ush to get it right. I used to paint on small crafts I made and that seemed to work the best for me. But it looks great!!! Keep it up!!!

Krysta, I love the way that you can make situations a unique and personal signature! Even soldiers in war time u can make whimsical and with a "child-likeness" . . .I love that about your work . . .Your nature really shines through in it! Your work has a unique flavor that I love!

Hey, Krysta. Just thought I'd let you know you've inspired me a bit - I signed up for an introductory painting class next semester.
