Looking forward to the day when I can sit out here again - this is my favorite spot on my front porch. I am nearing completion and am wondering if I should darken up the shadows or if I am missing anything else. This is oil on canvas, 22x16.

WoW~! It has the look of a watercolor. Almost photographic looking. I'm impressed!

There is no one way of doing things,
the rocking chair is floating but it is doing it in a fantastic way.
spend time before darkenning anything this magic floating chair is very unique.

At this point I would be scared to touch it! It is very real looking, the chair is floating a bit. Maybe touch it gently there?
Brilliant!!

Has a real relaxing quality about it - no wonder it's your favourite place!

U could maybe darken the shadow a little bit under the chair but really it's lovely as it is. I have trouble knowing when to finish my paintings!

I agree! I would be hesitant to add anything, but the chair's shadow would be where it's at. I love these paintings of corners that the artist loves, you can always tell so much love went into the painting of it. Nicely done

Thank you for all your lovely comments. You have all made my day! I thought maybe the rocker needed a little more shadow but I will try to go softly there. Thanks again for your input.

A well executed painting of a loved place.
I agree with the previous comments about darkening the shade under the chair a bit.

Superb. I love it. I also agree with touching the shadows a hair. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

You did a great job with this. The only thing that stands out to me that could be improved on is the pillow on the chair. Somehow it needs to be emphasized in a way that makes it appear to be leaning against the chair more. Otherwise, I don't think anything can be improved upon. Wonderful!

Pat, this is incredible. I feel like I can touch the chai, sit in it...
Very good work.

Fantastic!
I agree with what others said about the chair floating. One more thing cought my attention (being picky here). Look at the relationship between the plant and the chair. It is difficult to determine if the plant is infront or behind the chair/pillow. A more definite statement would help in stopping the floating.
