Chuck, this really works -- why? I have no idea, but I like it
I like the composition, the subjects, and the colors.
I think, "Riker Hill 07/27/01", is a really good painting.
The Very Best,

every fragment carries the same joy
filling and refreshing at the same time
accurate depictions of our favourite passtime.
(<a wierd food analogy> fresh salad with crispy bacon in it tomato and balsamic <yum>)
no criticism here, just an observation for next time - sometimes a quiet place for the eye to rest for a moment can be very effective.

the dark easels, dark arms,
dance through the white canvas, light and cloth.
its angles on one side, vs. verticals up on the other,
held at bay by the horoizontals
so much to see in this picture.
i like it.

Chuck, I especially envy your ability to organize clutter and make it beautiful. Scenes like this are my worst nightmare to try to paint, where there are so many details. Your ability to structure and organize them with paint is something I look forward to learning when I can get somewhere these kinds of painting opportunities are available.

the feeling of closed space in your picture is real. the bare shoulder of the model is beautiful. great picture !:clap:

ART...the food of life!

What I see is what ya get...this was the final sitting of a four week pose. After finishing my long term painting... http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14898
I decided to capture the intense anxiety of “battling” artists juxtaposed against the serene gesture of the model.
ayzia: energy. spontaneity. very cool.

Now that you mention it, there is (unintentional) cubist’s geometry.
caro: i like it.
bbbilly1326: especially envy your ability to organize clutter and make it beautiful.
Oh yeah (ROFLOL) you should see my house! Btw, I didn’t have time to think of “structure and organize.” If I did, I’m sure it wouldn’t work.
mclaughlin: the feeling of closed space in your picture is real.
Indeed, it was! Positioning of easels...always a struggle.

and another WOWEEE to you Chuck!!!
what a wonderful energy feeling to be painting in that studio. so full of live coming thru the paints, canvas, model and the artist.

giniaad: I’m honored by the colorful critique!
Ceu: If lucky, there’s an extraordinary dance between “paints, canvas, model and the artist.”

WOW! So much captured so quickly! I have often thought of turning my canvas on the class, but lacked your courage and ability to gather all that energy... FANTASTIC!!!!
I realize it is complete, but, here's my two- cent critique: A dark area toward the middle ( beyond the sitter, below central artist)would draw the viewer in, and provide the "rest" for the eye requested above without diminishing the action...

THANKS for input...But, no "rest" for weary during this frantic race to finish.

I love this....reminds me of my time at college.

Cherie: reminds me of my time at college.
Nothing changes...except, some of these “student” have gray hair.
Gollator: oh my, what a chaos in your studio.
Yeah...creation can be messy!
