Betsey, I'm a newbie on the site, thank you for "liking" my Garrapatta. Looking at your work, this one is my fav. You got some great input. Looking forward to seeing your larger rendition. You are really doing a great job.
Thanks, Dorian. Done!
Thanks Lori. I am working on a 16x16 canvas now, so I can take everyone's advice into account.
Super job Betsy
You need to correct your tag it should be IA.,Workshop21 other wise it will not show up under Workshop21! To do this click on your photo and a page will open and right up at the top there is a place where you can edit your photo or tags. This mistaken happens often....................smiles : ))
Welcome Betsy ! This is great considering you did it on your own without benefit of video. You'll be dangerous when you watch and paint. Here are some of my thoughts, I hope may help when you do it again. I like the atmosphere of the far building. The red building value is good.and the figures are very believable. Posts are a bit chunky. Put them on a diet but don't try to paint all of them. I would bring some of the blue in the water down into the green area just to tie the two together and also in the little grey area right front warm up the sand to transition from very warm sand to the greyed but still warm area. Check out Micheal Severen page to see excellent examples of transition of blues over greenish. Good luck and Happy Painting
Good job Betsy. Glad your joining us.
Thank you so much for your advice, Stu. It's exactly what I need, working alone all day as I do. I will be sure to address the blue, when I do this again larger. And I will be brave and attempt the posts in the larger piece. ;-)
Betsy, you don't appear to have any trouble here with value control and your atmospheric perspective is good. This is a small painting and putting in a lot more posts would make it too busy. Your boats are a bit too blue maybe and graying them a little might help. Welcome to the workshops; I think you are off to a good start. Stu
