Re: The Foster Barn

For some reason, I cannot see the image. Could be my computer. Does everyone else see it?

Re: The Foster Barn

I think it has to do with the letters "rn". Try removing the word "barn" from your picture name & upload again. I've noticed that this has happened before for this reason.

Re: The Foster Barn

crazywoman, I think this is nicely painted but it could maybe have had more compositional planning. There seems to be a lot of empty space in it with nothing that really grabs our eye. The darkest spot is properly placed for focal point ( the door) but it just is not large enough. Here is an example where a decision needs to be made. Do we need to stick too facts that do not necessarily deliver a beautiful painting...or do we change things around to please the eye. Sometimes the 'client' will not allow shifting reality, other times they will. Anyway to get to the point, I feel the barn needs to be larger. Use the clump of trees on our left,( they are to some degree because of value and size competing with the barn door) move them into the painting for more interest and balance with the barn and they also create a nice strong sense of depth and at the same time due to their progressively getting larger they lead the eye to the barn.
The other thing I would note is the use of the flowers, to sprinkle just a few daisy like flowers around in the foreground is a sure invitation for a judgment of amateur work, even though the painting as a whole is quite mature. If they are going to be used at all have them make a statement, use them to lead the eye back into the painting... Heres what I mean:


The values and colors in this are really wonderful!

Re: The Foster Barn

Croby... thanks for your input. As always it holds much value and insight. In this case the client asked for the flowers and I considered putting more of them but then thought it might be too much. They also asked for the fields and the hill surrounding the barn to look like it was. The barn has been torn down and the client only had the one photo of the barn from which I worked. In my mind there was no way to include the pastures/fields and make the barn larger on the paper size I used. I did cut some of the field off the front as it made the barn look even smaller. I guess to make this a better painting it would have to be completely redone and the field minimized as well as the back ground but then I am not sure the memory of what the client wanted would be there. One of those pondering things when trying to do a commission piece from one photo. I will try to upload the ref photo tomorrow so you can see what I was working from.

This is the reference photo I worked from. The client wanted the pasture put back in rather than plowed up like it is shown here.
