Thoughts before I start painting?
just a quick update here with a WIP. Any thoughts so far?
I agree with Arenhaus, a bit more canvas at the bottom wouldn't hurt. My eyes follow the waterfall down and the painting abruptly cuts off. You might consider adding some object/person(s) of interest down there, too, since that's where the painting's attention inevitably falls. Something more interesting than just rocks and water.
And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.
Here's my finished piece!
Overall its not bad, and has some strong points but there is a basic perspective problem. If we are looking up at the collumns, then we would not see the top of the water. The lip of the watefalls is above our eyeline. The waterfalls as it stands is not very convincing. You need to break up the water so that is not one glassy mass.
The predominance of blue is overwhelming. Why would the rock and stucture be blue?
