    Hi - right now, the way that the breaking wave/rocks in the middleground are set up makes the painting feel very flat. Maybe its the way that the breaking wave doesn't really break into anything - its just a kind of white-ish shape thats totally cut off by the high-contrast water in the foreground. Wheres the splash? You also have the sun set up as what you probably intended to be the focal point, but the high contrast on the tip of the big rock immediately draws my eye more than anything else.

    Take a look at dpaint's thread : http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=177729

    He captures seascapes beautifully, and might help you find your mistakes and improve the next attempt. Good luck!

    Dear Marlee,

    Iím sorry disappointing you about your hubby.
    It looks to me his greatest works are nothing but
    Photography + Corel/Photoshop Filters stuff.
    I donít have time to go backward in my development.
    However you are free to do so.

    Best,
    The Little Van Gogh

    Please have your eyes checked. We happen to have many professional artists here, and he is one of them. If you are going to immediately call "photoshop filters!" on every well done representational painting you see here, then you will be missing out on seeing an awful lot of skill from a studied hand.
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    Bla-Bla...

    I'm very glad we are on the same page.
    Dear Mr or Ms "The Pariano" have a look at this Marlee's favorite "hard work" = photo + Corel/Adobe Filters and if you are not convinced after it would be a good idea to get your eyes checked:

    Mediocre painting with serious composition flaws, horrible attitude.

    Not that I feel you deserve a reasonable critique but maybe you'll grow a bit:

    Sun is dead center - four horizontal bands of flatness - completely divided center of interest between sky and wave - no real sense of light on the water.

    Check your ego - people were trying to help you a bit.

    NO help requested

    Dear Mr X,
    You are coming from the land of Democracy,
    and you should know by now that
    NOT willing to accept people the way they are
    is a serious failure and indicator for a "horrible attitude" too!!!
    Check your ego as well, Sir!

    Five stars rating is not mediocre:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=196169
    and there is no space for more development...

    Don't mess with Bulgarian Art if you please!

    Best regards
    The little Van Gogh

    I really enjoy the handling of the sky in this one.

    And I should add, these comments are cracking me up.

    A good friend of mine once said "If you want understanding, it is readily available. If you don't want it, somebody can't even give it to you." LOL

    Rudeness is not really acceptable. If you would like a time out to consider your attitude just continue as you were.

    Dear Mr. Lyuben,

    I have no problem with Bulgarian Art...don't even know what that would be specifically. I do not believe anyone, from anywhere should accept the type of attitude you have demonstrated here.

    Calling yourself "The little Van Gogh" is absolutely laughable...so is the idea that "there is no space for more development...". Even the Masters continued to strive for greatness until the very end - glad you already made it.

    The link to your other painting indicates a rating of four stars. That is with four votes.

    @jetpack: I agree, the sky is well handled - the problem is the composition and it is hard to tell if the sky or thewave is the center of interest - they totally compete with each other.

    Sincerely,

    Jeff

    I think it's only selling yourself short to not aspire to paint better than Van Gogh, and find out what your own potential is. We all do need to lean on the masters when we start, though.

    Jeff, you're right. I really enjoy the handling of the wave as well, and the rock. Looking at the picture for longer, the sky and the wave are both very nice, but the foreground waves and background waves almost look like they've been painted by another person. The way they are painted (from the previously mentioned features) really makes the painting look strange!

    Keep painting and keep putting 'em up, Lyuben. Nobody starts at the top!

    "The Little Van Gogh"

    Dear Sirs/Madam,

    I'm glad I've been noticed. I hoped that you will comment not me but my paintings.
    When I call myself "little Van Gogh" - I do it with a sense of humor, which unfortunately you don't understand. My painting has nothing to do with Van Gogh.

    I would never let my self to "teach" anyone of you, especially if I don't like him/her. I recommend you to have a look at my gallery, so that your comments can be towards my work.

    Art would never develop if everything have been done according to the established rules.

    Thanks again for your attention.
    Lyuben

    PS: Enjoy my next Paint this week!
