Re: Portugalete. Place in Structured Critique

Wow,
it took me 30 minutes to figure out how to post a reply into this forum (Structured Critiques)!

Not even sure how I finally accomplished it. You do not have to be an expert to post a reply...just need to 'register, and agree'. Maybe this could be more easily explained.

Anyhow,
Portugalete:
This man with a black beret on a street in Spain.

I like it. The colors are restful and fresh.

I feel Spain in this painting. I like the grays...they feel alive.

Perspective is good. I definitely get the idea of going downhill on this narrow street.

The man's head and beret seem to be the focal point because of strong contrast with white and black.

I am very new to watercolor (and art) so I don't feel qualified to add more.

Thank you for sharing this painting.

Thank you!! I was getting paranoid with no responses. I notice you have a painting in WIP...so I will return the favor. Getting feedback helps...even if totally negative.

Re: Portugalete. Place in Structured Critique

If you went for a very soft watercolor wash feeling, that comes through nicely.

I could see a few places that a bit of stronger color could be used, but that is just my personal preference, I suppose...

My reply went thru just like any other..

Re: Portugalete. Place in Structured Critique

Thank you (TJ84) for commenting on my painting....I just looked at your paintings on Facebook (I think they are yours...JMWs Paintings?...Beautiful!

If you have time, I'd love to hear about where specifically you would add stronger color (or if just overall).

I love to paint...and am trying to change my style to more loose. All help is appreciated more than you know.

Re: Portugalete. Place in Structured Critique

Generally speaking, I like your painting. I like the warm colors. You have a tunnel composition and most important, it says something! However, as I see it, your perspective does seem a bit off. I suggest you find your vanishing point, then go from there. Good job.

Re: Portugalete. Place in Structured Critique

Thank you for commenting, Jules.

This painting was done from a photo taken while I was hiking in Spain. The man is walking down a hill....

The vanishing points for the buildings will be/are different from the street vanishing point.

Is there something specific you are seeing that is off?

Thanks again...

Claudia
