Re: an island wip

I studied this painting in Art History...all 5 versions

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_the_Dead_(painting)

I think this would be a great subject for a large canvas, I am liking what you have done so far

thanx for sharing this with us

Re: an island wip

Maybe try a variation on Bocklin with your work rather than a copy?
You could add some of your particular magic

Re: an island wip

Like what your doing here with the flowing colour and stillness in the water. Island looking a bit squashed? Better to take it closer to edges either side to give more room for trees? Arnie

Re: an island wip

Coming along nicely. I like the touch of mist on the trees.

Re: an island wip





thanks for watching guys ... here's the third coat - almost done, just a bit of tweaking to do (paddles, rower, shadows n such) ... suggestions welcome for anything else that bugs you ...
