What Do You Think?
Hey Friends, I'm asking for opinions. I know we all have differing opinions and most of the time I don't trust mine so I thought why not ask you guys. A couple weeks ago I posted an old painting of a cliff I saw in Michigan on Lake Michigan. A well known, I would say well respected, painter left a comment for me. He said something like "Strong work & beautiful painting". I was thrilled and totally surprised by his taking the time to comment. I always liked the piece but it never sold so I thought I was wrong in thinking it was good. I do know how to ramble, huh?
Anyway, I finished these 2 and can't decide if they are any good. I must confess they look better on my monitor. They look brighter. Usually I say "They look better in real life". Not this time.
Both are from the same little stretch of the Roanoke River in South Salem area of the new Greenway. I want to make a much bigger one and I'm hoping you guys can tell me what needs to be fixed before going bigger. In the 2nd piece I'm standing on a cliff looking down on the river and man fishing. I'm going to keep these for a while at least until I get the bigger one finished.
I hope you leave comments and I thank you in advance.
