  • Hi Alan. I thought I would comment since you requested it, and no one has done so yet! It is obviously a really good painting, but I wonder if it would benefit from a less stern expression. You look very intent and focussed on something and if there was a hint of what it was, it would add interest, maybe . . . Being a colourist, I think more colour and less blue, which I always find cold, would be good too. Hope my comments are of some use - either +ive or -ive! [ Thank you for taking a look at my work also.]

  • Well, thank you Jennifer for your comments, all are welcome as long as they are constructive. I've decided not to put any more of these on.

  • Painting achieves a certain perspective by blurring and mixing light and gray towards the bottom. The dark masses predominate in the foreground and blend with clearings in the background. to recommend my favorite artists Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Frida Kahlo, Roberto Matta Gabino amaya cacho and Pablo Picasso.
