View Full Version : My First Painting After A Long Break ...

09-10-2003, 09:35 PM

I've been pretty sick ... and dealing with lots of stuff, so haven't been painting on canvas for awhile. I've been drawing and working in colored pencils ... but decided to start back with acrylics a little bit.

Want to get a series of paintings ready for ebay ... and thought I'd share the first one. This is: 18" x 24" on stretched canvas.

Comments? Any suggestions for improvement? Is it ready for Ebay? :)

Thanks ...

HI Dee

I like the circular lines and all -- very pretty.

I'm wondering about the top left section. It seems a little vacant in comparison with each of the other areas of the painting, so kind of throws the balance off a bit?

can't think of anything else.

Cheryl is right, and looking at why it feels that way I believe the background is coming forward at us. The flowers need to stand out, come forward. Cool back the background... like atmosphere in a landscape... maybe a hint of blue. :)
