    Oils and acrylics - updated three portraits -

    A bunch of paintings that I did during past two or so months. Mostly in oils and acrylics. The last three are all acrylics. All critique would be appreciated.

    Beautiful stuff

    A quick (but somewhat subjective) composition crit on the first one: IMO I think the 'voice graphic' has to break out of the sillouette of the jacket on it's appraoch to the mouth, since it took me a little while to figure out it wasn't part of the garment.

    Looks great! I love the figure coming out of the matrioshka doll, very creative. I agree with Jason Rainville's comment about the first piece, I didn't realize the swirls weren't part of the figure's jacket.

    That last one is incredible, though you should probably try breaking out of that 1 figure composition thing you got going on in all of these.

    Love the matrioshka doll, the astronaut, Dali's funny moustache, and the cyclist most. They're so exceptional and full of satirical sense. Btw, I think adding one or two figures/objects will change the picture's atmosphere more or less.

    I like them all. The astronaut piece I think's wonderful although the last one strikes me as technically the best. A strong Phil Hale influence?

    Jason Rainville & Wisteria, You are right about the swirls blending in with the jacket. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Baron, I have always liked mr Hales works but I was kinda aiming for style similiar to nicolas' with the last one. I guess I failed

    light and rinaswan, yep, I should get more objects in my paintings. And backgrounds wouldn't hurt either. I am working on that though. Thanks.

    Thanks for all feedback dudes & dudettes.
