View Full Version : The Healing - new acrylic painting
04-24-2010, 03:24 AM
Hello all! I've never painted anything like this; I usually paint brighter, much more simple pieces. I'm excited but also very nervous about it. I'd love any feedback you can provide, and if I should keep going in this direction?
Thanks so much!

I love it, and as my wife peeked over my shoulder she echoed my comments as well! These kind of images seem to be very popular these days.

Very charming, distinctive style of work. the only thing that would make me nervous was wondering if I could maintain the style and enjoy the process over time. This is a unique style, point of view and a delight. IMHO
Wonderful work and style.
definitely keep going , it's beautiful and will have very wide appeal.

I like it a LOT. There is a local artist around here with a similar style, and she is quite successful with it. Very well done!

Interesting and well done! Love those big eyes.

Thank you all so very much for the wonderful comments! Wow! I'm really inspired to keep this kind of thing up now! :)
idylbrush, I had considered that as well. I find that if I balance the darker, more detailed and emotionally draining pieces (like this one!) with my brighter, happier, simpler pieces that I do ok. Otherwise I think it would just overwhelm me!

I love the hues and tones. It's a really cool design, it's almost as if the virds and heart are just the design of the dress.

I really like this painting. It makes you sit and think about hidden stories behind the look on her face. She is so sad. Love the oversized eyes.
I could see how painting this style all the time would make you severely depressed.

Thank you so much! I am so so happy at the reponse I'm getting here. :)
This piece was completely draining. I did a WIP of it on my blog, and kept having to take breaks from it to keep myself from going crazy. I really had a blast, though, delving into such an unknown area. I'd love to keep them up!
