    Environment

    Hi all. I just finished these two paintings for our first mandatory school assignment of this year. Earlier I've been very focused on characters, but lately I've tried to work on my environment skills. I'd like to hear what you guys think.

    I spent about a day and a half on each of them.

    I like them a lot. I currently struggle a lot making enviroments. It works ok, when I work black and white, however I have such a hard time making things look good in color.

    I think you've found a really nice balance within your colors and tones. I wish I knew how to do the same.

    You've got some really great concepts here! I think you could bring in the darks even more to really make the glowing aspects pop.
    Great job, post some more!

    nice work and concepts, perhaps something else to consider is adding some small birds flying or leaves blowing in the wind

    I agree it would probably bring more life into the image. But according to the story (which I'm not completely comfortable to share atm) this world has no weather or animal life. It's a place that exists between life and death and so I tried to convay a sence of tranquility, calm and scilence. I'll probably post the story some time, but I still need to work on it some more

    I like your painting.The natural environment, encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth or some region thereof.This report suggests a tiered approach to analyzing problems and ascertaining suitable policy responses.

    Hi Yngvill. How are things In Kristiansand?
    These has some really reat qualities to them. Imaginative an good colors. You have one problem though. They lack a focal point. Now my eyes wander rather undesizively.
    Take the last one. Beautiful idea. I take it its the water that is suppose to be the focal point here. Try using light and color to stear the eyes. Now you have the same level of light everywere. Ty to lighten upp the water a bit more, and darken the trees around and bushes in front. You can also use color contrast. These dont have to be in high contrast, but just enough so that the different focal elements gets different feeling (cool and warm). I know you know these thins, but I ust thought I'd mention them anyways

    Hai Geir Kristiansand is awesome, but very hectical.. loads of new stuff to learn you know

    About the paintings- For the first one I have to say I feel like the eye travels in a good way from the foreground through the warm entrance light to the tree and the up along it, but since I'm the one who planned it I will ofcourse see that myself and so it's not always easy to know if it communicates correctly (you know the deal)

    For the second one I agree. And like you said - I know these things so I shouldn't make these errors. However, in my defence, the deadline was really pushy for this painting

    I really love to get crits like this - they make me think twice about the issue next time I paint something. So thank you sweetie

    Yea I see what you mean about the first one. But you could still push it further in the background. There there are mostly mid values.
    But hey, time pressure and those things... I can understand that

    Ps.: I've posted the cd cover I've been working on in my Finished stuff. Take a peek and shoot

    Your mood and atmosphere are beautiful. The pieces feel calming and mysterious at the same time. The execution is beautiful too.
