Re: Stone Coleus

Love the contrast between the photorealism of the subject with the looser style of the grass and how well you faded out the grass into the distance. *takes notes*

Great painting,I love your handling of light,a lot to learn from your paintings about the use of light and shadows.

Re: Stone Coleus

First of all I really admire your works. U r way better than lots of us. Please excuse me(since I’ve just started on learning how to paint so this is my humble opinion), to me u r good in placing the right n correct amount of highlight n shadow into a subject while keeping the overall painting tight but I still think some of them lack the subtleties especially on the mid tonal range (in another word too contrast ). I know this is is very hard to achieve but lol your works r good enough n I really like them.

Re: Stone Coleus

This is a textural gem. Pottery, rock, wood, plant leaves, flower petals, grass are all texturally great. As with all of your paintings, the values are very well done, making the light look so real and natural. Nicely done.
