Re: A small gouache study of a young attractive female

Hi Adam, it seems like your values are all pretty low. This may have been done on purpose. And Iím assuming this is a value study before a full color painting is done? If so, you may want to consider lightening or darkening the background a bit. In your value study, her face sinks into the background because of the low contrast between her skin and the background. Perhaps it will be differentiated in hue. As of right now the highest point of contrast is her hair, and it seems to compete with her face as a focal point.

Overall, great value study. Drawing is on point.

This is the non critique section. I only take critiques from artists that paint at a higher level than me. I never post in the critique section as I donít like yahoos with no skills critiquing me. Itís super annoying and rediculous. No offence to you....maybe you do paint at a high level? No clue. The low contrast with her face and background was done so I could have a lost edge. All done purposely.

Thanks for positive comments everyone. Love the comments, not a fan of critiques unless the artist critiquing is super skilled. 😉. If youíre u are an artist that critiques painters that are way better than you, you look foolish.
