Pthalo Turoqoise and Pink

Hi WC Pals

These were painted over a month ago, when spring first hit. It was early this year, and I had a good chunk of time set aside just to paint.


16x20"


24x20"


12x12" It poured rain on me for the last 15 minutes of this painting, but I put up an umbrella and stuck it out. That was a bad idea, because my easel swelled and became extremely hard to use for the next week.

C&C is always welcome when you see my work. Is there a passage that works well, or should have been scraped in any of these?
Thanks for stopping in!
Kyle

Re: Pthalo Turoqoise and Pink

great color and negative shapes Kyle - your stuff is moving forward in a great way - seems more dialed in with the drawing and masses.

Re: Pthalo Turoqoise and Pink

I really enjoy your shape-making, Kyle. Large shapes, small shapes, all placed together like a dynamic puzzle.
Crits? Well, not really a criticism- while I love the saturated colour, in the past you've occasionally dabbled with dirtier earth tones amid the cleaner colours. I thought it made for interesting contrast and would love to see you try that again. Just a thought, but I love these as they are.

Re: Pthalo Turoqoise and Pink

Kyle,

The first and second speak to me. I love that crazy pink octopus shape in the second works great with those greens - 24 x 20" big!

I'm a little confused by the last one. The light colors in the tree seem too light for a grey day? Not sure? Those flowering trees appear very bright even on cloudy days.

Tried darkening the lights but I don't think I helped it.

Love all of them! Great stuff Kyle! Same style, but slightly more focused and polished. Those bright colours are simply divine.

Very nice, Kyle. You're getting so good at simplifying masses.
