Re: anticipation, cc sought for, wip

Mary, I'm not sure that anything in this painting needs tweaking. I really respond to these two youngsters exploring their world. That they're facing a large set of windows that is overexposed, soft in form and filled with light says something to me about the joy of discovery and the wonder of life. The only finishing I'd like to see is that it be matted and framed, and cherished for years to come.

John

I think your painting needs your signature. What a beautiful story. What size is this and which paper did you use?

Really fine work. I would like to see the widow frames and outside color tone a little stronger with just a tad more color, but keep it as suggestive as it is now.

I agree with the above, especially the window frame. The difference between the color/contrast of the kids and the window frame made me think that the rest of the painting was merely unfinished. Of course, this is just my opinion and can be ignored.

That being said, the kids are fantastically painted!

Love it! I like the softness of the surroundings, which emphasises the children. Utterly charming
