Revisiting Paintings

The first is a subject that I tried a few years back and was left unsatisfied. Tried again. The second is a rework of one that I posted here about a week ago.

Thanks for looking. C&C Welcome. Gary

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Wow Gary: two very nice tweaks. You must be happy with both.
The building in the second has more interest with windows.
All elements seem to be working well, Great job.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Nice work on the revisions! I did not see the original first painting, but the softened autumn tree sits in the second scene really well, and nice window adds to the house.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Love the changes in the second one. Both have really nice warmth to them and good composition. good idea for the sky holes in the second one. It sets it back more and provides some nice breaks.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Nice work. I like the second one especially: composition, light and color, beautiful.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Both beautiful. The rework on the second is good, but I also really liked the original - different strokes

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Thanks Derek, Ken, Rich, Wendy and CaliAnn.

The first picture flopped for me again. I was not sure why. Maybe too many similarity shaped objects (trees and clouds) at about the same size. Time to let it go.

Thanks again. Gary

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Lovely paintings Gary could it be that the top painting is overall all warm colours, just an idea.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Thanks Caroline. You might be right about enough variety in temperature of color. Gary

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Hey Gary,

Your changes in the second painting took that one up a notch! Well done! I'm not familiar with the first one, so as to what you changed, I don't know. I do like how you treated the leaf masses in the trees.

Randy

I think maybe if you created more recession in the mountains, dulling them a little and lightening to push them into the distance you would then be happy with it?

I had another look, and if you just change the angles of the two repeating shapes, especially the cloud shape that points out of the picture right in the centre, that would make a huge difference.


Sometimes it has taken almost a year for me to notice things like that in my own paintings.

Re: Revisiting Paintings

Gary,
Love your style, the second painting was improved with the added details. I like the first painting also.

Regards,
