Re: Abstract #4... “On The Ice At Dawn”
Your use of colour is impressive you have a natural flair for that imho I know for fact I could not handle colour like that straight of or even after being taught lol . So that being said if you read up on values in terms colour ( ie if you made the whole picture here and made it grey scale on a computer you would see where the eye naturally gravitates to as things like brightest white and black is no 1 attention getter for the eye for example it then moves down the scale of intensity ) so then you have knowledge plus your intuitive skill . I say values as you can use this as a tool to balance out the composition in terms of space and weight..if you look at painting in terms as though it were a real live sculpture (or is how I see it anyway) There is a lot right with this it is excellent in many ways ,sad to pick it apart but it's constructive criticism.
Sculpture is what you bump into when you back up to see a painting..Barnett Newman
