I feel your tree is to even on the protrusions and indentations. Also the shape in between the branches is quite symmetrical. The pink does make a focal point which is not too loud.

Re: Johannes - Student Critique Posts Only

Hi Johannes,

This is a nostalgic scene from when I was a child. It was an urban area but it had/(still has) a lovely park which of course seemed quite large when I was growing up. My Grandmother used to take me there on a hot summer day to play in the covered sandboxes and also to swim in the childrens pool - there were summer day camps and in the winter I learned how to ice skate on the fish ponds. In the future I most likely will attempt some scenes from the different seasons.

This is water soluble oil paints on 11 x 14 inch canvas board. I did work with Liquin with the second coat and I do like it. A slight odor but tolerable and brushes still washable with soap and water after wiping them on paper.

"A Child Skating at West Hudson Park"


Any feed back you can give would be appreciated.

Hi Johannes,

I keep looking at this painting thinking there is something not quite right and was hoping you could give me some feedback. Water Soluble W&N oil paints - used Liquin on the second coat of this painting.

"Rocky Mountains in the Fall"

Overall it works. If we want to get picky then I would say the white tree trunks are equally spaced and have the same width. I guess you are conveying a night scene?

I realize it is a common practice for artists to immortalize their memories thru painting. This being the case it is not fair to critique because it is how you remember things. The technical aspects are not important under these conditions. Now that being said well maybe you could partially block on of the holes in the bridge to avoid cloning. The posts can also be uneven.
