Vertigo

by SilverComb
Oh this painting is still in progress. The figures on the right have been smudged out and replaced, and the top has been greatly revised to look more like grass. There is also a burning sun. Anyway, this is a painting of some swimmers in a river... and that's all I can say for now.
Medium: Oil on canvas
Size: 96 x 96
Price: ---

Thank you though. I appreciate your other comments as well (the face in the other painting never got fixed though :P)

for more opinions (wow this is so long.) Ok.

the square. I didn't even consider the possibility of creating a large 8x8 canvas because... well, i couldn't fit it through a door. :P What I need for this painting is less screaming mimi and dazzling color and more quiet action in the trees. The figures are now completely changed (I have to update this) and they're looking up.... ok, this is becoming confusing. Sorry, I think I'll just update this tomorrow with a sketch and a new photo and put it up in the 'in progress' forum

Thanks! Yeah, I had a grand image for this painting for a while, but it became difficult to execute on a large scale. I had to complete this to some degree for a competition, and hadn't worked on it for a while since... last week, Thursday actually. The size had to be big because I wanted the impact of my original image to be strong and unescapable. The four panels... well, I had two canvases already which I pretty much wanted to use (get rid of) and I ended up stretching two more canvases to complete

OK. First, kudos for the size and the action.
I have to ask, did you want the four-panel for a specific reason or was it just to show all your work together?
I like each of these separately - they kind of work together color-wise and your top panels look like waves and with the bottom action, looks like swimmers are in an ocean. Only thing is the waves are crashing against each other (turn 'em into trees?)
I like your pink to reddish SOS colors for your swimmers
and the (boat, jetski, ...?
