Re: Hard Rain

Hi Don- I am guessing this is the "third" painting that you referred to in the other thread. It is very quiet this time of year....
A good start, I would say- interesting to see the beginning stages- what materials are you using?

Re: Hard Rain

Who is this performer...sorry, don't know!

Oh! Joe Cocker...one of my most favorite performers. Met him in Crawford, CO at his restaurant years ago. Really nice guy.

Re: Hard Rain

Don, I like this one.
If I might add: the face is well done. As is the insturument, mike and scarfe.
But they seem painted on top of each other. I think you need to soften your edges when working in sections by getting the last/connecting area wet again.
The mike and scarfe at the top of his forehead stand out alot to me.
IMHO of coarse.

I think it is really well done, just adding a bit of critique.
Cheers,
Brad

Re: Hard Rain

Brad thanks for that I have just finished the Joe Cocker one and decided that this one needs more work so you comments are really good. Don
