Hi all again,
then I painted this landscape which I am still considering whether it's finished or not. I know the fence is a bit too much and out of perspective I think? Should I try and redo it or anything else that needs attention still? Any suggestions and c&c's always welcome.

Hi Stephan. I just love this painting, the colours are so vibrant. The whole painting sings with life and vitality.

I agree the fence is a great tool to lead the viewers eye into the picture; but for me there's something not quite right about it. To me it looks like the fence has been placed on top of the field rather than standing in the field. Personally I would try and rework the corn along the fence line in the foreground so that there appears to be a bit of variation between the crop on this side of the fence and that on the other. I think this would help to bring the fence into the field instead of being on top of the field.

I hope that's helpful.

Regards

David

I really like the bright colors and the fench works well, perhaps making the pole in the foreground a bit more substantial would lend even more depth. Bringing some of the plant growth over the lower wire would help anchor the fence

This is exactly what I was going to say, break the line of the lower wire.

Think.....the fence was there before the crop.

The colors are great, bright and cheerful. The fence is fine, but change the middle ground. You have great foreground and background, but no middle ground. For the middle ground, you can fade the coloring of the crop and shorten the stalks. I agree with the other people to bring the height of the crop over the lower wire. :thumbsup:

Hi all, thanks for the kind comments and the suggestions for the breaking the bottom wire of the fence. I did do it initially but it did not come out on the photo so well but also in real life it was very vague. I have now added some more grass and also the base of the poles were covered with some grass as that also made it look like the wire was hanging in the air. 3chaway9, it is on wrapped canvas about 35x25 inches.

Well I hope it looks better now? I am including a close-up as well, but this bluddy new camera has a flash so bright you can light up at least half of darkest Africa hehe:D
