I show my works here to get critique and advises. Then, thank you. I already did what Michael suggested, and I fill not like returning to this work. I will use you advises at the next one.
Dear Elena, Look at your painting Metheora revised 2 and you will understand what I mean. You can do it right without glazing somthing which is not done well! I am your friend and I am used to say straight what I feel! Michael is very nice explaining all that proffessional way. I would be glad to hear somebody's opinion and critique about my paintings from this site the same way I am telling to you. Eventually this is all about our group Isn't it?
This is already done here (not brushed off, but glazed ;) http://thecompleteartist.ning.com/photo/landscape-revised?context=user Of coarse I know this theoretically. In practice this is not always gets right fast. Nature is not always looks like lesson examples (and this is not interesting at all to paint the same lesson example each time), and some slight color and value differences are not always easy to catch.
I simply don't understand you. After so meny lesons you lack the value and atmospheric perspetive?
If I were you I will just brush-off and remade from the start this painting!
Thanks, Michael, is it better now here? http://thecompleteartist.ning.com/photo/landscape-revised?context=user
Hi Helena. Wonderful concept .. I personally like panoramic vistas! The illusion of depth and atmosphere is important in vista type paintings (well important in all paintings!) ... because the tools we use to depict the illusion of depth is narrowed. Unfortunately, Helena, your painting lacks depth and atmosphere due to two things: Lack of proper values and color temperature. Your values are exactly the same from foreground to distance .. even your upright, slanted, and flat planes are the same. This causes a flatting out of the whole scene .. with no illusion of depth because of it. The only clue we have that there is a distant plane is the size differences .. but we need value and temp. also. In some areas of the distant plane, you have values that are actually .. darker ... then your foreground darks ... the warm areas in your background are as warm as anything in the foreground. Anyway, using the language of painting: The problem is Value and Color Temperature. Composition is good, drawing is good, edges look good, etc ... but your values are way off. Also, the rock on the left has a face ... 2 eyes and a mouth ... maybe get rid of that. A solution to the value and color problem would be to put a translucent glaze over the whole background ... wait for your painting to dry. Then, punch up a few more darks in the foreground.
