There is always something about your work that makes it feel complete yet loose at the same time. It feels natural.
Im jealous of it...i wish mine could be like yours.
The one thing I could say would perhaps the lower left hand corner that has been mentioned.
The gray overlays, they seem to be seperate from the whole. I know you have edited it and you dont have to change a bit but it seems to contrast too much for me. It feels like an eraser has been taken to the gray overlay and the boundaries are too apparent. Maybe a bit more blending into the work and less like a gray screen on top of it would work more for me though.
In the end a complete piece of work though more than I can say for mine...you inspire as always!!!
The top 2/3rds of this piece is wonderful but the lower 1/3 seems to be an afterthought compared to the top. My eye travels around the work but gets stuck in the brown area under the horizon on the left hand side. You have so many great components everywhere else but here there is nothing but open space here. Possibly continue the circles further down? Change the dark brown triangular shape into the red patterned design you have on the dress? Incorporate some white or lighter colors into that area so its balanced with the upper portion of the composition? I really enjoy this piece, great contrast of colors and abstraction with realism. The red of the hat and shoulder strap, light gestural figure and the green eyes and lips are popping off the paper and simply amazing. Actually everything from the dress up is amazing. Its just the left hand side mentioned above and the brown triangular shape on the bottom that detracts from the overall work for me. Hope this helped and is what you were looking for. Critiques turn out to be very tough for me when I cant actually be there and point out what Im trying to say. Let me know what you think?
As you said it, I wanted to create a constrast between the upper part and the other. It was meant to be quite minimalistic, whitout that much elements. But I think you are right, I shall redo this brown thing, I'm gonna pload this quickly.
thank you again for this well done critic. And don't worry about saying what you think, I don't bite, I promise!
Nice! I like the direction this is going. What I'd like to see is more energetic lines in the "patterned" areas; like her hair and dress. I feel that the lines that you have in those shapes need more vitality and movement...they stop short of where they seem they should be going.
thank you. I think you are actually making sense. And I understand what you said, although, I wanted to create a kind of a contrast between the upper part and the other one. Anyway, I really do understand what you mean. Thank you again for your honnest comment.
