Another great one Marvin...

05-12-2003, 04:03 PM

The "odd" one sees the detail jpgs, wish you guys would switch to a MAC. LOL

Very nice details, Marvin, love the broken shutters. You always ground your pieces making them appropriate--nothing floats. Good job.

You have such a wonderful talent, Marvin!

05-12-2003, 05:25 PM
It's wonderful! I love the light airy feel of this one.

Your paintings ae so beautiful. The drawing so intricate. I have always drawn with my brush now I have to learn to draw with a pencil hmmmmmmm.
This website is the most fantastic one I have ever seen, it is wonderful. To be able to look at peoples work in progress and everytime I log on there is something new. What a fantastic classroom. It inspires me and I will be posting a painting of my own real soon.
Thank you for your encouragement, you are a wonderful person, and all the people on this site are just so talented it is very humbling.
God go with you all

Another wonderful painting, Marvin.

The detail is teriffic.

Marvin, this is a lovely street scene. I clicked on the detail links ... terrific! Just a question, there seems to be a lot of action on the right hand side of the painting but just the building on the left, is there a reason for that?

Thank you all for looking and commenting, Mary, Lyn, Char, els, Auntie, Gia, Karen, Judy, Doug and Mary-Ann.

Thanks, Ruth... you're right... forgot about no funny signs.

Pam, yes I use Photoshop 7 but I use "save for web" ever since Ruth told us about Scott's annoucement.

Judy, you're welcome... looking forward to your paintings.

Mary-Ann, no particular reason for that... in fact, I find it a lack of balance for the painting... that's why I added a crack with bricks showing.

Breath taking as usual.
Good luck on the mural, when you get to start it.

Excellent painting again marvin.. Is the blue shutter really that broken or did you improvise? coz i don't want to be an alarmist but there is a good chance of that shutter falling off bouncing of the rain cover and killing someone walking out of the shop. :eek:

05-13-2003, 07:56 AM
Thanks, Dazzer.

Yes, some of the blue shutters are broken in real life but I exaggerated it a bit, especially the one in the middle... looked like it's hanging on just one hinge.... perhaps I could call the authority to have it fixed.... but that's what I love about these old buildings... :rolleyes: :)


05-13-2003, 08:00 AM
Yeah me too Marvin... I love old buildings and barns etc with tiles missing and grubby walls... much more fun to paint than something new :)

05-13-2003, 08:08 AM
NIce job Marvin.

I particularly like the treatment in the main building's wall - very exciting indeed.....


05-13-2003, 08:22 AM
As usual, beautiful painting Marvin!!!! Personally I would have prefered to see more stores and less blank wall.
