" mouse over painting for details "

Well :clap: thanks for the " details " :D

What I like a lot in your pieces, is the " snapshot " aspect to it.
Like you took that precise moment of their life , and transposed it on the canvas.
Time stands still.

I like.

Hey !!!!!! The second painting wasn`t there when I started commenting, and now it`s there :confused:

The second one " appeals " to my taste a lot :clap:

I prefer the top one, for sure--there's something inconsistent about the bottom one, as though you were trying to imitate someone else's style and not quite capturing it. Whereas the top one looks like you're fully grown into a style of your own and are in complete control of your abilities.

Anal-retentive type that I am, I can't help but envy your loose style and vivid colours. You have a knack for putting in JUST enough detail to suggest the forms without getting all fussy. Wonderful!

Well my mouse must be distracted by cheese or something, unless it was a joke which I apparantly didn't GET?! lol

Now definitely - and thanks for the walksee in the direction of. Amazing how you've still retained the expression and yet are so much looser in your application.

Like you just extracted the essence and rendered it directly on the canvas. What an impact!

ahh Jerry, this is my favourite of yours, the second piece, :clap:
So sexy, and loose.
Super shadows and lights, from her arm to her air. Background colours all mixing and complementing so well.
I really dig her look and sunglasses.

Hi Jerry

That new painting has it! (nothing wring wth the older one either)
Fresh in color and textured application, great weave of the two images.
(btw that weave was lacking imo a little with the gavinpainting, that's probably to be expected with a portrait though, and a blank background)
The application of the paint in you latest reminds me of the work of Karel Appel (Cobra), he has a big exhibit at the moment here in Brussels.

you are becomming very comfortable within yourself and your finished expression will surely draw you a lot of due attention. The then looks like a rough in while the now looks like a polished work :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Jerry,
I also prefer the second but both are nice. Love how you seem to have captured a specific moment. Perspective is also very good.

each will have its own enthusiastic audience
as for me
I think the second is stronger compositionally
that, along with the sharper overall image,
makes for a stronger visual impact/communication
