Re: One of my old Oil Paintings
I am assuming that 'marksmom' was asking for comments/critiques by asking "Thoughts?". That said, there is absolutely NO point for rudeness here on WC. If you don't have something helpful to say, say nothing and move on!
I'm really getting tired of snotty, rude remarks!
Now, as to the painting, it's a general rule (not hard and fast) that the very tippy top of the mountain NOT be in the center of the canvas. As well, the canvas shouldn't be cut in half by half sky and half land thus making it look perhaps like two different paintings.
I think you could add another mountain peak on the left that is higher than the one in the middle and make this a very nice landscape. And...taking some of the gold and pushing it up a bit closer to the base of the mountain say, on the lower right, would balance this piece.
It's a good beginning but just needs a few tweaks to make it special. Keep painting!
When life hands you lemons, ask for tequila and salt and call me!
