I like your colors! My only critique is that maybe your darks could be a little darker. Increased contrast would make the colors pop even more. For example, the dark shadow behind the rooster is really effective. I would like to see colors that dark also in the purpley areas behind the barrel and to the right of the chicken coop. Just a suggestion...very nice though.

I envy your loose brush work! I have not forgotten the 42nd street dare and actually have the canvas with the sketch on it, sitting here looking at me...that was a year ago?!!
(I have probably just doomed that sketch!) LOL... :)

I appreciate all the nice thoughts on this one!!!!

Damar:
Oh yeah, the 42nd St. dare!!!! I was excited about that one, ran out and got a slide made and entered it into the AWS show only to have it bounced back rejected by the judge! :mad: :p Their loss! ha, ha! Well, I liked it!! LOL :)

Distinctive style is so true. I think Bertoni's are totally recognisable. Nice work!

Here's a change I made to this painting. I added a door that's slightly ajar to the top. I think it leads the eye around better than the big dark section with something in front that was confusing. C&C appreciated!!! :)
