Do you want critique or comment?
This should be good!
lay it on me !!!
are you board?
Typo: I mean on the board or admin or something
No, not board or admin. I'm a new member. Do you want comments on the cows, and your other work, too? The cows were the first of yours I saw. I'll comment on yours IF you comment on mine. I won't have anything to put up for several days. agreed?
I just posted a WIP in still life.
I don't know anything of boats, so probably won't comment on the structure. You have a lot of action going here, this is quite nice.
Your sky is wonderful: Stormy, active, very atmospheric. The horizon line seems to dip a bit on the viewer left side, and the water seems to have a general tip down to the left. It will help if you add a few lines to raise the water on the V left.
The light appears to me to be coming from the right front, diffuse due to clouds. Seems to mea bit of the back of the cabin of the near boat and the rim, should be a bit brighter, not white, but a bit lighter gray, as the light would be on them You have it lighter on the cabin, IMO it should be just a tad lighter, and again, on the rim, before it curves to the side. A little more shading in the red of the center boat would help, as the curvature would not all yield the same light or intensity. Seems to me the sails on the center boat in particular would have a stronger indication of cloud shadows, stormy coloring, Perhaps scumbling a bit of that color on, then wiping off would be enough to do the trick. vMaybe indicate a bit of shape to that front sail to indicate it's struck by hard wind.
The last item would be spray: For the activity and the weather, seems there should be visible spray esp behind this foreground boat.
All just my opinion. Hope it helps.
It's been a few days and you haven't kept your word, haven't even bothered to acknowledge my comments. Nonetheless, I do hope they helped you.
Your lack of manners is showing.
Easy there readem.. Gonna check your painting now
Sorry couldn't find any
Nice is not a critique, it is a relatively meaningless word.
I do appreciate that you did not rip it apart considering I am a beginner, and it is a learning piece, not intended as a masterwork. However, there are a couple of things that appear now, to be at least okay: the color of the cup the highlights on it and the cannister are appropriate. (In a critique, start off with the good stuff.)
3 areas that you could have mentioned immediately: the ellipse went off somehow, the cup sides are different, the shadow under the cup should be stronger, the cannister on the shelf is about to slide out the window. Three biggies is probably enough for a start, but you might have made a suggestion on how to show depth, which this does lack. This is my first piece with crayons, and I haven't figured that out with them, and maybe in such a small piece it would be hard to do with them. How are the edges, should I have those bushes outside the window?
Thanks for not destroying me in my newness and fragility, but don't blow me off, either. Neither of us deserves that.
I doubt that you'll see this here, so I'm copying it to your response.
I really liked this painting as soon as I saw it. The colors are wonderful, free flowing movement to the whole piece. I read the comments and was surprised, in many ways. I wouldn't change a thing!!!
thanks you! gonna check out yours now
