William..I really like this painting..subtle complementaries..good design..tied together nicely! Did you want critique on this or just comments? I think you will get a lot of positive feedback. Sandy

This is a beautiful piece. Reminds me of the impressionists. I made just a few minor changes to get rid of the absolute straight lines. Your eye will naturally finsh a line for you. I feel that by pulling all the stems off the page, that's where my eye was going and they were competing for my attention.
And I changed the color of the flower that is behind the stems near the opening of the vase

wonderful! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

William, Is this your painting? i thought you were a watercolorist? From some things you said in chat, I'm wondering if you want to see our reaction to this pot compared to the landscape? Did you do this in 98?


William, Where is your landscape now? I can't find it?

Tx Sandyartist... it’s really a compliment have good input form an artist like you

Yes Arlene I agree with Your changes. The cut you did on the laid stem is ok…;0)
As far I remember I only sketched the jar, the rest was painted “on the fly”, so composition was on the fly too. It took me about three hours in a row.
Didn’t made nay mix… colours are layered direct from the tubes, layer after layers. I like the textures I can make this way… and acrylics dry so fast that is difficult to me to do twice the same mix.
The little flower…. Ooops … I forgot to paint it before I applied the varnish.
Tx Arlene

Msue… don call Matisse names…. ;0)

Cagathoc… yes I did this one two years ago on a Saturday afternoon… You are seeing my gallerie of rejections… I dislike this…only posted to feel the input… Yes you are right I prefer mainly the watercolours but sometimes I try Acrylic too. The signature… My complete name is António Augusto dos Reis Caseiro…. But After this Ester y will only use William (a nick I like too much)… a new age will come ;0) The P. D. letters are the initials of Ponta Delgada (the town where I painted it) in 98 yes.
The landscape…yes… I deleted it.
Tx Cagathoc

Jazzm… I hope to catch you too… You are Irish right?… so take a jar of coffee and stay awake till 3 AM (10PM – USA) The crowd comes after dinner (their dinner)

nice appealing picture william. I think if you are doing matisse the background would be flatter, more one color.The stem changes are legitimate and I really like the pic. If you were to continue in an impressionist manner then you need to lose some of the edges. leave it alone except for changing the stems.
