seen this on levelup fb grp or so. i think its cool but too saturated everywhere hence its too busy for me to be pleasing since it doesnt really have a focal point does it?! ^^
I love deeply saturated colors and LeighAnn knows that so that's why she put it up there for me to see. However I do think this picture should have more blending of the colors.
I see the focal point of that painting being the sun. It is the first thing the eye catches and invites you to come into the picture and look around. It is located in a 'sweet' spot. The main subject of the painting is the boat, and the beauty of the painting is the colors.
Hey this is fun, critiquing work that is from no-one we know so none of us has a stake in the game.
This is what I got done today. I find the sketching part the hardest part. I think I have the potential of totally embarrassing myself with this one, but if one does not try stretching it's hard to grow.
I have a soft ball game to go to tonight so I'm done for today.
Nice drawing. I never do that, I just start painting. I may have to change that.
Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.
I do things different depending on the painting. Most Landscapes or flowers I will just start painting, but if there is a complicated part (like an animal, person, or building up close) in the picture I will draw it in first. Far away subjects I don't bother doing that.
Anyway I changed my plans on the picture, I decided not to do the dock because it would be too difficult for me to draw the boats and buildings and I do think it would be a better picture without it. So here is what I did today. I'm done with painting for today...just need to clean my brushes.
Funny wasn't it just the other day I said I don't do WIP anymore. Oh well it's a woman's prerogative to change.
