John, glad to see your comments (and credentials to back them up).
Hello John: Enjoyed your comment and critique on this painting. I found your comments very refreshing and straight forward.
It looks like you may be new to the site and if so, Welcome. I took the opportunity to visit your site and notice no bio as yet - hope you will afford us the opportunity to get go know you and that we will see posts from you sometime soon.
Enjoy perusing AA.
Thank you John and everyone for your honest feedback and comments. Appreciate every piece of advice.
There's nothing wrong with painting for money and I am very happy and admire anyone who can market and sell their artwork. I will keep practicing and try out different styles and hopefully can develop my own.
Thank you again for your encouragement and critique.
I think there is an excellent sense of the structure of the model's highlighted cheekbone and eye orbits, the nose is very convincing, you got a good start on the hair, and I like that you didn't over fuss with the clothing. In general, I think you have a grasp of the underlying anatomy, so that's a good place to be and the refinement and details will follow in time. OK, so the green may need some rethinking, but it's a secondary issue and I don't think it's irreversible. One can gain from shorter studies as well as longer poses. We did a lot of both when I was taking life class.
Powerful portrait, great colors, details and texture! Capitalism works for me......
very good head study ,i love your brush stroke , beautiful
Thanks Roniyana for your kind words.
Oh, for heaven's sakes, bvssey, being honest doesn't mean being brutal! Christen told us right up front that this was a class project -- that she was in the process of learning.
I hope you are having a better day today. Maybe some studio time would help.
A season is set for everything; a time for every experience under heaven.
Maybe this woudl be more fair if bvssey had some content on the site him/herself?
Thank you Edna, Sarah and everyone on the forum for continuing support and kind words. I believe Bvssey has no mean purpose other than to state his/her opinion which is fine with me. I think we all have strong love for art.
thanks everyone and happy paintings....
You are welcome! I think you did a great job on your journey in art. You have good instincts and learn fast. I can't wait to see your next one. Well done.
