Hi Joy, Thank  you for your crit/comment on my painting, Forest Life.  I see what you mean, and will keep that in mind for future paintings.  Thank you for bringing that light/dark difference to my attention.  Sometimes when people point out things then you have a tendency to remember it and add it to the thought process for future paintings.  This is great!  Thank you again very much. Roena

Thank you Joy for your comment on #2 revision Evening Light.  Agree with implementing suggestions by the group it does appear to be more natural looking a scene.

Joy you are quite right.  The poles needed to be connected somehow.   Why do I do things always in a hurry.    Thanks for caring.

Hi Joy

Thanks for your comments re my boatshed painting. yes the background could do with some more variation and you also mentioned visual pathway.  In this painting the brightly foreground is a barrier to the background  whereas in the "up the creek" study the creek or stream connects the two and acts as a visual pathway Regards  Denis King

Alex Perez is a wonderful and generous artist. He has some good videos on u-tube in which he goes into great detail of his methods. I have a few works on my page that I painted along with his videos. I wish he would do more.
