Daily small paintings- and an occasional larger one-in a quest to refine my craft and above all, enjoy the process
Merveilleux cet orange et cette orange... Bises
I had a post a few weeks ago saying I was open to critiques but also didn't get any . . . came to the same conclusion as you did. If I have a constructive thing to say, I'm silent because I fear I'm not expert enough to offer it. But it's a good exercise even for the critiquer to look more judiciously and try to determine if something isn't quite working. Like you, I often don't see right away what could have been done better. It seems all of us on this journey are getting better at portraying objects but don't always see how we could have made a better painting. This one is a beauty, by the way!
I agree with Lorraine. She is good at clarifying thoughts. Anyway, I like your colors and you did a great job with the values. I did a painting earlier in the week to study values, but I wimped out and used only one color. Very nice!
I learn so much about composition and color by looking at your beautiful work...this is another great piece!
Strong, structural analysis with harmonious triad palette. Possibly the left plane of left orange might show a little more shadowing to be more in synch with the left cast shadow.
Great color combinations! So successfully simple but hard to do!
