You showed great courage in tackling a difficult subject Robin.The figure, the rafts, the water and the beach are beautifully done with great colour and tone. One of the things I try to make sure I do when nearing the end of a painting is to look away and then flick the eye back to the painting. Somehow, it helps me to notice things that are troublesome – out of keeping with the rest of the picture. Your cliff on the right and the reflections at the bottom of the cliff trouble me. They are too busy – especially the reflections. The other thing – less of a bother – is the line of cliffs in the background. They are far too blue for the distance. The colour is imposing itself on the rest of the painting. A quieter shade of blueish grey would have worked better. A very good effort nevertheless.
Hi Robin, okay ..I see your reference photo and will take a look at it and get back to you tomorrow. :)
Robin, I am not the one who can criticise... I just can say that I like it!!!! What I will DO criticise is that I would love to see it in the Workshop challenge so that I can vote for it, but if you do not tag it Workshop32, I won't find it!!!! (Workshop with capital W) :)
