I've been disconnected many times. Can,t find the place where they mentionned the size of the files allowed. Just realise the picture I thought had been damaged during uploading has been modified by Dana. Sorry Dana but they wear their had the way I have on the picture, not down on the forehead.

Thank you again for starting the thread.

Irene, looks good. It's Japanese isn't it ? I remember seeing pictures in magazines with this kind of headdresses ...

Re: WIP thread...12/8 to 12/19 bi monthly

Hi again guys;

Looks like I'm losing my wc-posting shyness. So here's a WIP I started today. Actually, I was going to recycle this 30-36 canvas when I decided to give another go to this painting I had started last year. It was real bad so I let it go. Today, for a reason or another, I decided to give it a second try with an impressionnist treatment.

It's currently too wet to continue shadows in the face, coat and hand. But beside that, what else needs to be done to make it stunning. There is an hour-glass in the boat, which I did not paint yet. The theme is that beauty is ephemeral.

Thank you for all your good advise.

Irène

Re: WIP thread...12/8 to 12/19 bi monthly

Here are my thoughts:

What I did was extend the branches down over the boat and into the water/figure. Also, I set the headdress down onto the figure, softened the edge of the boat and softened the edge of the boat and the water.

Nyc (wip)

MY IMAGE(S):



GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: NYC (WIP)
Year Created: 2004
Medium: Oil
Surface: Canvas
Dimension: 40x40 inches
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
Well, this is a cross posting from WOYE. It is the central panel of a tryptch on New York City.
I felt I had ruined this one but having recetnly spent a couple of hours on this I feel its pulling together better. The photo is not the best quality. Sorry.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
comments Particularly with relation to the vendors cart, which is quite dominant but seems a bit dull. Also the pavement, which is better than before - believe me - but still needs more work.

Re: Nyc (wip)

two directions are happenning here
one is a hopper-esque simplicity delivering an elegant americana tableau
the other is a highly detailed almost naive artist's ode to new york.

1) simplyfy and go stylish and maybe timeless.
or
2) have fun with the detail and who cares what they say!

I vote for #2 at this stage in your carreer
(but really I don't know you or your carreer so - welcome to the site!)

Re: Nyc (wip)

I like it .. the card is dull because you have all cold colors in it .. if you add a few warms of equal value the thing will shine like metal as it will reflect a little of all .. and as Jerry says, welcome ..
