I missed all these good stuffs just see these today since it is at the top line of the AMPC page.
Holly, thanks for being so nice to leave good words. I went to look at the original painting and did not see any blue specs and it's hard to say what they are. The BG was done with red and black so I don't think it can turn into blue. I changed my mind from blue to darker BG before I started doing it.But thanks all the same.
C&C are welcome and appreciated.
Lore- I love all three of your paintings/drawings. The Horses are well done with good values. They look real. The apples are floating nicely in the bowl. They look real too with variation in colors. The Bird has beautiful BG colors but I like to see more detailed work on the feathers, also values change will help it not to look flat. Anyhow good jobs so far. Keep going.
Marsha- Nice waterfall and soft beautiful colors. Very nice greenery. I like the layered rocks on the two sides of the water fall but am a little confused with the top ones. Personally, I always try not to make round or curve rocks. They can be triangular or oblong or any shape that go straight or cut sharp at the corners, etc. but not round except if they are small rocks or gravels. Naturally, there are many rocks that are round or dome shapes but when in paintings they do not transport the hard surface or strength of the rock too well. This is a tip from my on- line teacher who was teaching thousands of students all over the world who signed up for his classes. His name is Johannes Vloosthuis. Otherwise this is a nice painting of a waterfall.
Catherine- Nice paintings I like all four and love the three sunflowers the best. They really pop against the black background.
Thank you sandichot!

I instantly recognized Van Gogh's bedroom not that I spent any time with him there!!!
Sam I don't think that you were his type anyway Or was thus before he lost his ear???
C and C always welcomed
Wow! several at once! My favorites are the bowl with apples, sunflowers on black, and Van Gogh's high-traffic bedroom (everyone seems to recognize it!). With the other still life (and I noticed the great spiral) I'd love to see you do another still life like that but with more of the elements touching each other.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you Alex. I've been experimenting with painting anything/everything. I've been gathering a lot of interesting things inside before winter to use to actually set up a still life. I'm trying to get a good understanding of shading, value and composition so maybe it's time I give it a whirl. I had fun with Vincent's bedroom lol.
Jen C & C's always welcome
