View Full Version : WDE 4 Feb mangled market

and if you think the perspective's off here, you should have seen it this morning!:p I had to do the sky and left half over again- probably should have started from scratch. If I had a printer I'd have traced it... but then even the photo perspective is skewed and the buildings lean in. But I want to practice buildings...In keeping with the WDE spirit, here it is!:D I like some bits of it. Acrylic 6x8 on masonite. That old piece of masonite has been painted on so many times!:rolleyes:

Where did you find that 6 foot by 8 foot piece of masonite? And that huge keyboard?
Looks pretty good. Gives a sense of wide open space down the avenue.

The overall image is very nice. Love how you did the people!:)

I quite like the shapes of the buildings, it does seem to give the sense of space, or the buildings moving out of the way to give the market some space :D Wendy it just needs some bright colours in the market, and then it will suit the style completely.

It's good. And in spite of you not liking it you were true to the WDE spirit and posted it.
I do like the colors on the left. People are well done too.

This was a brave undertaking! You've got the dark feeling of the photo, and I like the people too...
02-05-2006, 04:44 PM
Darn it, I was so sure this was pastel when I first looked!
I think you sorted out the wonky perspective in the photo extremely well Wendy - it was also quite a dark ref, so double good girl!
I like your colour scheme too and the figures are well handled.
:clap::clap::clap: (these are because it was a difficult ref - well done you :D)

Wendy, should we push F5 to refresh? LOL
I really like this, bright clean colors. I think you are doing very well in your practices. I like the buildings, not too much detail, lets the imagination wander and rove.

Well handled...has a sense of bustle & life about it! Well done!:clap: :clap: :clap:
02-05-2006, 07:46 PM
I agree well done! Lovely painting!

I think this is great.
Nice colors and it has loads of atmosphere.

wendy you have got it spot on. i know its horrible when the lines dont look right but you have nailed the look and feel of the market without knowing it. It was just like that, and i love how the people are done. My DH thinks its cracking too! :D :D

You are being too hard on yourself. All of those old building are always tilted and wonky from years of settling. The key here is the depth and feel of the crowd and bustle and you caught that for certain. Keep going!!!!!

Wendy, Its good - especially when you see how much you got into that little size! You never know about those painted over ones - they could be the one that you really love! LOL My DH teases me about painting over - says I will keep the archeologists guessing!
02-06-2006, 12:23 PM
Keep at it Wendy. This has a great feel and really is painterly which I love. Perspective is an evil thing to deal with for anyone...THAT'S WHY I PAINT FURRY CREATURES! Ha! I don't think it is as wonky as you think. Don't judge...just paint. :)
02-06-2006, 06:56 PM
I think perspective is hard too, especially on several buildings in a row, I think you have done a great job and love the people!
02-06-2006, 09:23 PM
I like it! ;o)
Your busy market is lovely Wendy nice colours too.
02-07-2006, 09:59 AM
It looks great and I can feel the hurrying of the people :)
02-07-2006, 01:21 PM
Hey Wendy:wave: i like your version a lot,the people are good and i love the man on the left by the lampost and the way you have painted the other figures in shadow under the stalls,i like your mangled buildings too:) in reality the perspective is always there,but buildings do lean out or in especialy old buildings, and subside over the years,which gives them their charm and makes them difficult to draw,i dont think your buildings detract anything from the painting:clap:
02-07-2006, 09:35 PM
Great people and a great feeling of hustle bustle!!!!tyree:clap: :wave: :clap:
02-07-2006, 09:44 PM
Great job, Wendy! Love it...buildings and all.
Best wishes, Dean

I like the feel of a busy market, you did nail that. And the depth of the buildings certainly shows well too.
02-08-2006, 05:36 AM
Wow, Wendy, I think you nailed it too!! You're braver than me.
I saved this, but after having a good look, thought it was very hard to do, and left it.
You've done a fantastic job with this very hard subject, especially the curve in the buildings to the left.!!! Great Painting!! :D :wave:

Such a challange, but you rose to the occassion !
Yup, gotta agree with the others, that feeling of fullness and bustling crowd is 'spot on', and crooked old buildings just seem right. The crowd below really emphasizes the clear beautiful open sky above, and the tops of the elegant buildings soaring up to it.
