That's really cool Tony! You have captured the day and temperature well, I can almost see their icy breath!

04-08-2007, 07:49 AM
Cool Anthony, I like the movement that you've captured!

04-08-2007, 08:18 AM
I really like it Anthony! Like the bright colors and action. :)

With my first glance it looks, to me, like they are on a ledge. I would try to soften the edge between the light and dark area of the ice. Just an observation.

Like the viewpoint :D
Like the interaction of the figures - :thumbsup:
Like the colours - except for the ?hills? - think perhaps the green is a little too strong and the 'join' of land and ice neds some thought :D

Also, the darker blue stretching across in aband gives me the impression of a vertical plane rather than the horizontal one of the lighter surface ... just needs breaking up a little with the lighter blue :D

Excellent action caught on canvas.

I have to agree with Maureen about the hills and the band of ice. The seem too dominant and take away from the figures too much. But well done in capturing a moment in time.

Keep them coming. You paint such a variety of subjects and do well with all. I can't wait to see the next one!

Oooh this is a great "camera angle". Did you spend any time growing up in Canada playing hockey outdoors on frozen ponds?

Agree about the hills being too dominant but simply love the movement and energy in the figures. Great stuff.

Great composition :thumbsup: Also like the skate marks in the ice.

No guarantee Tony but I believe your work would sell and posting on ebay is cheap. Ive only had limited results but others sell everything they post

That works for me. It is so much better. It makes more sense now without the green.
