Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

Wow, this is stunning. I would love to see a work in progress by you, with water as the subject.

Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

Arnold....I do like this very much....and you have uploaded this...thank you!!!! It makes it easier to critique.

My only crit is the area immediately above the top waterfall. The colour is very flat. I can't even imagine what it should be. The rest of the painting looks good though.

Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

Hi Arnold,
Very nice work indeed. It has a watercolour look, did you apply watercolour techniques?

Love this one Arnold....the tree with all those colors really makes it cook. Is the shadow on the left from the painting or the photo? Nick

Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

This is beautiful. I agree I would like to see a WIP too. I get confused with the colors...you did a fantastic job on that

Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

Arnold,
I love your consistant style throughout your paintings. When I look closely at it, I notice that they are very simple shapes, but as I move back (my head, that is ) it looks like a very complex composistion.
Have you posted a WIP thread here? I would love to see how you do it!

Dave

Re: Waterfalls acrylic - Arnold Lowrey

ooooh ooh oooh I LOVE it!! neat style...
got to love those nice chunk rocks...
I'm with Carol..that blank space(I see it's rpobably a bridge) needs a little more tonal texture/interest..it doesn't quite fit yet..
I'm also with everyone else..a WIP would be awesomely inspiring.. Pretty Pease???

This is such a great example of acrylic diversity.
Perfect balance of transparency and opaque-ness. A very pleasing compostion, well done.
