    Good call Fuseboy. Yes, it's almost like the background needs to do more work to lead the eye into the center of interest, namely the vase and flowers.

    Guess that's another vote for the background...

    Thank you Flake. Great points. Yes, you're right, no definite light source is weakening this painting.

    Giving your reply some thought, I think when I do this exercise again I will be more careful...

    Well done Morgan_R! Thanks for pointing out the Schmid painting reference. Yes, there is growing support towards the overly simplified, soft and nebulous, poorly brushed background as being a key...

    Perfect. Thank you Elwell.

    Yes, the basic drawing of the vase is weakening the image. You are correct about the emphasis on hue, as the tulips for example, were painted with saturated color...

    Thanks for the paintover Razorleaf. Yes, the weak, soft background leaves the viewer without a definite sense of perspective. Perhaps it might be a good idea to do my own griding up of the image and...

    Thanks SquareSquare! Great to get a fresh set of eyes on this picture. Definitely agree that I've made a 'floating still-life'. The vague background is weakening the picture.

    Also, thanks Giacomo....
  7. What makes this painting amateurish?

    I painted this still life of tulips over the weekend. It was an exercise to practise some new painting techniques I had learnt recently from an instructional DVD by Richard Schmid. My intention was...
  8. SketchBook: Painting sketches

    The next step for me has been to develop a technique for further working up these dream sketches in oil paint. Of course unlike the simplicity of a line drawing, I now have the added factor of...
  9. SketchBook: Charcoal renderings

    The dream sketch diary has been great for making me drawing at least fifteen minutes every day. It's also been a fantastic source for dipping into for ideas. Occasionally I'll take some of the ideas...

    I scan the sketches in every so often and upload them all to my website (http://lemiere.com/index.php/collections?func=viewcategory&catid=1).
  11. SketchBook: Philippe Le Miere's Sketchbook of Dreams

    Since reading a lot of C G Jung's works about three months ago, I've been keeping a regular dream sketch diary.

    I now have a nice little collection of dream sketches and thought I'd share a few...
  12. Tablet PC Input Service conflicting with Wacom driver?

    The other day I was complaining to an artist friend of mine about how Corel Painter 11's more sophistocated brushes are 'just not quite there'. In particular I was finding that the Artists' Oils had...

    Great job mMark!

    I say take it to the next stage of refinement.

    Curious. Any background information about this knight in shining arm? I guess a next step might be to add him to his world.
