    Landscape

    I hummed and haa'd about posting this here as it's not really a concept, but a study of one of Bierstadt's paintings, but I thought it would be good to get some crits from peeps here. There's an earlier version that was looking a bit better <here> which I may go back to and work from again. There's also a large version <here>. However, the study is aimed at improving some of my painting for a personal project I want to start on soon.

    Wow. That's awesome. The detail is what really sets it apart from your run of the mill landscapes. Two thumbs up, no crits.

    Thumbs up

    Great landscape, I especially like the way the sky captures so much atmosphere. My one crit. woiuld be the strong white haze as the mountains meet the end of the lake. I think it's a little bit too strong. Maybe it would help if you put a little bit more of the yellow in the "glow".

    Later.

    Btw, those little deer in the foreground is just cool!

    The Sierras correct? Beautiful piece. Dead on the money of the original piece. Ever been there?

    A few things I see:

    Some of your darker values are not receding in space. The middle ground groups too much with the foreground. Check your value structure.

    Also, the original painting approaches a much cooler temperature.

    Bierstadt is by far my favorite landscape artist, and I think you captured his style extremely well. At first I was going to bash you for stealing the pic, but I saw that you gave him credit. No crits!

    hey ceenda,

    good to see you here man. Could we see a bigger image?

    Here's an artist I think you might like. Caspar David Friedrich. You've probably heard of him before, but in case you haven't, here's a link.
