Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Baseball

In my painting I wanted to convey the beauty and movement of the sport. I am not certain if I have too many highlights. One of my concerns with several sports figures in a painting is to maintain unity. This painting was done using only virtual brushes and paints. All comments are appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Baseball

Arlene I respond to your post as I hate to see somebody post and the post drop off the page without comment, I am not sure I understand your paintings as I am of the realist sort of viewer I wouldn't say artist.
I like the presentation and like the colour you have used , I can see the movement suggested and find it an appealing image so keep at it and let us see where you go with these!

Re: Baseball

Arlene, You might be on to something here, (it reminds me of a poster study) but I think the depth and atmospheric perspective here requires quite a bit more thought: the pitcher, closest to us would be most edged, detailed and chromatic (and value/contrasty) but the catcher has even more edgy shoes so he comes forward, right over the top of the pitcher's head..

Does "virtual" mean it is digital ? If so, we appreciate you just writing that!

Kevin
