Re: June 2010 Landscape Challenge

meggs, Very nice landscape! Photos are for reference, in my opinion, and artistic license should be used! That's why we are artists!

makes it an even more beautiful painting.I like how you changed the time.

Re: June 2010 Landscape Challenge

I hope pencil pushers are welcome here too. I'm not quite ready to pick up the brush yet but I'm an enjoying my graphite pencils plenty. I'm still quite a newbie at this so any C&C is much appreciated;



I zoomed in and cropped the photo then blew it up. That resulted in a somewhat fuzzy ref photo which created challenges in some areas, especially when trying to judge values in the foliage.

Re: June 2010 Landscape Challenge

I worked on this one yesterday in acrylics on gessoed panel 4 x 6. I liked the shimmering water in this beach scene a lot. I'm working on some more to post soon since they're all lovely landscapes. Lil

Re: June 2010 Landscape Challenge

Moscatel: Great view of the seaside cliffs! I love the subtle colors mixed in - congrats on selling a painting!

Erica: Wow! Eyecatching colors there on the cliffs and sea - nice!

Crowwoman: The fine details in the grass and trees really catch my eye in both your paintings. Well done.

Friesin: I wouldn't worry about looseness - the boat painting is just right and captures the needed details while still being straightforward. The cliffs turned out nicely, too!

Painterly Peg: Ah, so many colors worked in here! I love both your paintings! Those cliffs look dramatic!S

Prestonsega: You've created a wonderful evening feeling to the path along the trees!

Leslie: I like the elegant nature of your ink and wash painting.

Fishpimp: Looks good to me! There's some drama in those clouds!

Brian: This painting has such a feeling of light to it! I love that blue sky with clouds swirling by.

Doug: Ah, that would be a nice, peaceful path to take down to the water.

Reggie: Nice job on capturing the chaos of the ocean in your painting by a peaceful beach.

Meggs: Such a sunny, summer painting! Great job on all the mixed greens in the second one.

Vlad: The cool, distant mountains and hints of clouds add drama that goes nicely with the mix of lights and darks in your 1st work, while the second one is such a nice summer scene. The cliffs turned out very well; those tricky colors along the horizon really catch my eye.

Lynne: Wow! I love both the singular tree and those mighty cliffs!

Mary: Good job on the beach scene - I'd like to go out in that water on the boats!

Skylar: Powerful, tonal piece capturing an amazing sunset

Nabisoft: This one has a sort of Pacific Northwest feel with mist in it.

Deborah: Great ocean sparkle there! Amazing how much you can fit on such a small canvas.

David: I used to draw some many years ago, and creating a work like this is tricky. Very well done!

Artsymom: Wow - you can feel the sunlight gleaming off the sand and water in this work!

Ron: A lot of subtle colors in there: I really like the foliage and those distant hills.
