Oh, Hector, IMO this is the best one of your series so far. Like your palette in particular. Keep them coming!:D

This is really nice, Hector

Very unusual textures you achieved here and the colors are so nice and warm

I like this one too, Hector :) The texture must come from that new handmade paper. Very nice :)

Nice painting.

But I would like to see more shadows on the buildings.
I presume the light is coming from the left.

I can see the shadow on the road. but on the building on the right there is no shadow continuing on from the shadow on the road.
Maybe I am wrong, maybe the light is coming from the top left of the painting,

Otherwise I love it.

An excellent composition, Hector. Started with an excellent photograph. The placing of the figures, the wall lamp and the distant church are excellent. Perhaps the shadows could be darker (where's Pampe :D)

I prefer crisper lines and solid washes myself, but this has an "old master" feel to it - can't put my finger on the artist.

Hector, this is the best of your series so far... The composition is great, your pallette is very pleasing and your perspective is on the money... I agree with Phillip that all that's needed is a little deeper shadow...

Astur,

I really like the looseness and the texture as well. I agree with the comments on the shadows--it seems like the values of the buildings on the left are the same as those on the right and maybe should be a little darker?? I aspire to paint like this (those who can, do; those who can't, critique...haha).

Astur I love it - I agree with the shadows ,otherwise -maybe it was a rainy day ?
But I have a little problem ? Are all of this people kids or is their size wrong?

Und You did the perspective of the right houses wall well , but what about the roof , I think he needs a little more perspective and shadow too. Originally posted by Phillip

Thank you very much for comments and advice...

well, the day in photo ref was cloudy, not clearly where is the light source... i feel is on the left, then I see I must put some shadows on the left bulding...

and yes, the are "little" people :) . Even with the tipical big doors in that ancient houses, 2 on the center are definitly out of size...

Thanks

I like many things about this piece - the multi-colored sky is nice and the loosely rendered cathedral too. Two things: If the larger dark spaces on the closer buildings are doors, then, the people look linda small in comparison since they're in the near area... also, perhaps one of the doors just after the two buildings (on left and right) could be darkened/detailed (I'd do the left one).. I think this might be something I'd do if it were my painting.

In any case, nice work. jti
