Title: Uinta Mountains
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!
This is a painting I feel I need to stop working on. I think my ceaseless revisions have reached the point at which they are making things worse so it’s time to see what suggestions you veterans might be kind of enough to share. Some of the aspects of the painting I’m struggling with are these:
1. The purple fading of the background mountains is a little too strong (too purple). The real life subject really does fade to a nice purple but it hasn’t translated well in the painting.
2. The foreground aspen tree lacks “body” and depth. It was too tentatively painted and lacks convincing patte<br>s of light and shade.
3. The foreground pine is too rigid. It needs more character.
Do you agree with these criticisms? Any other suggestions?
MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I'm a beginner painter and am eager to improve. I'm open to all types of feedback.
