Re: fusion

Help? in what way?

tell us what you feel about this painting.
What does the title refer to ? Do the colors represent anything in particular? I always like to hear from the artist as they 'present their work' to us.

This has enough variety in mark making and colors to catch my interest, and to be pleasing to the eye.
what size is it? What medium was used?

looking forward to seeing and hearing more from you.

Re: fusion

You have an intuitive sense of colour, form, space etc etc.What you have done here to my mind is perfection I say this as I feel when I look at it..what is not to like it is perfect (however as birdhs may well agree?... it is perfection in the sense that it has some disorganisation about it in parts which all adds up to it's whole which gives it it's perfection ) Very difficult thing to balance out colour line shape etc and bring it all together so impressive and excellent work, I would be quite smug if it were my work

Re: fusion

Thank you all so much.
I never know when/if to stop.
Your comments were really helpful because i can call it finished even though I did a few adjustments but they arent anything significant to repost.
And i forgot to mention it is 12x12, acrylic, charcoal and pencil.

Re: fusion

I like your colour palette a lot. I think my eye wants to see a little more blue or dirty blues from the yellow combining but it still looks lovely! I would not be disappointed at all with this work!

Re: fusion

Wow...your markmaking, your variety of shapes are all working well! My one observation is to consider how the saturation of yellow is all the same. Toning down some of those shapes will allow the eye to rest in areas and give your other colors a chance to show.

Re: fusion

This needs no assistance. Composition, mark making, blending, values...all quite wonderful. Yellow can be a tough challenge. I love what you’ve done with it.
