I have a horror of even numbers in paintings but the guy with the white coat stepping forward kind of negates this in a way. Still would have preferred four behind him. I think it is a fun painting . Don't need sunglasses, just enjoying the sunshiny pleasure of this. Chammi.

thanks stephan and Chammi. Glad you are not blinded! lol

Chammi, the 'guy' in a white coat is a girl:p and I painted this with a family of 5 guys and one girl in mind:) But I like even numbers anyway, often paint 4 people since I have 3 sisters.

Hi Lulu - fab composition - it totally works - love their attitudes. The girl is way cool. so full of energy - you've done great.

One thought, and only because someone mistook the figure in white for male -

Yes, the white figure has a definite figure, but the shape of the head is the basically the same, and feminine, for all of the figures. If you squared the jawlines on the five guys- make their heads less pointy side down egg shape, more oval or block shaped, wouldn't have to be a lot - it would make the gender difference read more clearly - the figure in white would not only have a womanly figure, she'd be the only one with a feminine facial shape.

They seem like the kind of people you'd invite to your party to make sure it was exciting.

Very cool painting. My first impression were 6 girls, with the front one being the sassy one in the bunch :)

10-09-2006, 06:34 PM
Thanks Ruth.

Thanks Darr, really appreciate your crit. Will leave this one but keep it in mind for others.

Magicash, thanks too! I like that you see them like that!

10-09-2006, 08:18 PM
Oh I dooooo like this. The girl has such cute curves and a very sexy stance.:smug: I have to admit though, that at first glance they all looked like girls till I took note of the curves. Would it help to make the men look more masculine? You could square off their jaws a bit maybe?? Just thinking out loud.

LOVE the blue against the orange/red!:thumbsup:

Looking forward to that coffee/chat/giggle!:wave:

10-12-2006, 03:19 PM
A+ on this! :D such talent!

10-17-2006, 02:13 AM

Still searching.. :D

Cheers JJ

Anita, you've got a good eye - thanks for telling me that!

Wow! I really love the bright colors and how they blend at the bottom and in the background as well. Fabulous!


10-19-2006, 10:56 PM
WOW! What an attention grabber! You have a great style, does not come across as contrived either, which is refreshing. Ok now I have to go and paint because you've inspired me! Thank-you!
