I'll be constructively critical, i loved your "Roses" pic, i totally thought it was excellent. This one has merits but for me does not reach the
same standard.. this is no bad thing though. I craft a lot and often get things wrong, though with the things i make and the processes i use i am
able to just make something smaller and it's rare i cant rescue a piece in some way (see my sig to get an idea of what i mean re my crafts)
In a sense, that is quite unimportant though - the value is often in the process itself.. the mental and physical activity, using your creativity as
well as developing yourself as a creator. there is always joy and learning, and i like looking back at early pieces i have made and seeing how i have
progressed. funnily enough, i like my earlier pieces that was not initially happy with the better i get at my own crafts.
thanks for sharing, i really think you have talent at what you do
i think you are being a rough on yourself there, it just did not please you as much as "roses"... in my opinion you have chosen the most difficult
art and medium - oil paintings of life. you should be proud of what you have achieved already, and any piece you are not happy with is still a very
valuable experience. evaluate what could have been done better and why.. work out your strengths in this artform and play to them for a while, then
start to stretch yourself.
i genuinely meant it when i said you have talent. it's just my opinion but i have impeccable taste
Wrong...it is still a work in progress to be that critical when you are just starting out is a doing yourself a disservice!
Oh I guess that painting it is already finished.
No no no...your painting SKILL is a work in progress! That painting may be done and may not be your favorite but that depends on what you are wanting
to achieve. Expressionism? or Realism? Your skill is still a work in progress!
I'm so glad I didn't miss this one. I saw both your flower paintings, and must of been sleeping or cleaning or parenting when this one came up. I'm
glad I clicked on the Art forum instead of just relying on my current topics button.
I think your a very talented, natural painter. So glad you've taken time to share them.
