Dear, 115942074
Or can I just call you "115"
I think your skill is very high. The Black and White image is compositionally daring and beautifully rendered. And I think it's terrific not just that you've added a dash of red but that there are some other muted and subtle colors snuck in there.
The Asian figures are painted with great confidence, colors and diversity in their positions. The lengthening of the bodies does not appeal to me but I think that's just personal preference.
Good luck with the Royal Gallery. It's a pretty high hurdle.

very powerful direct painterly style. I absolutel love the last image. It is somewhat of a cliche, the basic monotone with a dash of red, but you have given it new life! Wonderful image and setting. Do I see a political statement here?

I think the last image is more erotic than political but perhaps Iím influenced by the naked bum icon. Anyway, what a great painting! Not the this really matters, but I canít quite make out what type of tunnel this is and it makes me squint at the painting. Itís looks really dark on my monitor.

perhaps I mistook...it seemed to me an Oriental compound with a moon gate. I wondered about the icon, but from Clive's perspective I see its application?
