Please critique my paintings.  Do I have any talent?  Could any of these sell, or are they to amateur?

Hello ,

I see that no one replied to your post afternearly two months.

I am not a painter, but I have been teaching for a long time;

What I can tell is that nearly everybody got talent.

For some people it is natural, for others, it need a lot of work before they can express themselves;

All you need is the will to try and improve, and work on your technique and inspiration.

There is a lot of videos on you tube showing how to paint, intuitive painting and abstract painting;

My approach is to look at what the others do, and try to express something which is personnal. To be honest, I don't think I am succeeding now, but I keep trying.

Yours paintings are pleasant to look at, but I think they are yet too symetrical.

let your brush go and try a lot on paper, with small formats, so that they can go to the wastepaper after the exercice;

you will learn to discern what is good from what is just an exercice on paper.

I hope this reply helps you,

I quite like them. I have seen worse for sale with $250.00 dollars marked on them at markets, and they have sold.

Don't be put off. Gerry
