Vincent would have you over for tea and conversation, I'm totally con-Vince-ed!
"Big Agra", "Here's Where it Gets Weird" & the 1st one hold my attention longer. This matters because a painting shoud make me want to spend time. These ones seem to have a purposeful hand in not just line, but in composition & color, & application of that color. It is important for a painting to have a 'reason' for being a 'painting', and not an illustration or drawing.
Must add before furher crit: It is understood that viewing on screen is not ideal. We (u & me) know this. We understand the limitation. That being said
What can you do with color... and just color?
What can you do with physical quality of paint?
What can you do with passive space?
I had more thoughts but ManIt'sLate/Early. Got to log off now but please message me sometime in the coming weeks to remind me to look at the art you have posted online. Like to see the progression.
Thank you for the request to view/comment.
I am a painter & 2D medium artist but not an illustrator, (by choice)

I always try to make sure artists know their work is appreciated because most people don't have the vocabulary necessary to describe what it is about art that they like or dislike. At least in the US I've found that to be the case, maybe in Europe people get a decent education about the arts.
