    14. I'm sorry I couldn't find a good copy of this Landscape in Red, which I hope it's the name of the piece, but I really wanted to do this one.
    I have ignored the texture of the canvas in my study, I hope it's correct as I see no point in overlaying a texture layer on the study.
    I love the color range of this piece and the realism, specially of the reflections on the water which look way better in the original I have to say, the continuity of the river stream and the balance between the river bank with the closer mountain and the reflection of this mountain and the second mountain to the left.

    Edit:I think I might have to come back to review a couple details on this one... or I'm just looking too much!

    Holy cow. These are too good, but I can tell from your sketchbook that you're experienced so I'll try not to feel too bad about my own studies after seeing these

    Just amazing

    Agerkvist, thank you for taking a look at my sketchbook. I think I'm probably more pig-headed than experienced for the moment but thanks for the compliments .

    It's just amazing to see me up there. Thank you so much.

    15. I chose this Henry Moore's Catspaws of the Land, because I love all it's color range and variety of shapes both on the water and the land, very challenging to mimic, the economy but precision of shapes on the sides creating depth and space out of the main focus and also the use of saturation to create light and attract attention to the main focus.

    I didn't know nor the piece neither the Artist, but I really like this painting and this way of painting both water surface and rocky landscape.

    Coming with the next study on Sunday.

    16. I chose this Canal in Venice from Monsted because it reminds me a lot of the environment designs made for entertainment industry nowadays. I think this piece has a very interesting perspective and lighting and the combination of elements within it make it a piece very inspiring for me.
    Tomorrow I'll upload a review. I have to review the sky and I have forgotten a window! .

    Edit: revision

    these are stellar. in the last couple images the clouds are a little more contrasting in the original...ie stronger light source. aside from that popping out at me, these are super strong and you should be proud of your progress. keep up the great work.

    Could be even a bit more brighter maybe.

    17.I chose this one for it's variety of shapes on the fuselage, mainly
    symmetric on the main body on the right and almost chaotic on the left
    giving that look of technological complexity, and because the way Berkey
    mixes naval and aeronautic shapes gives a lot of authenticity to his designs.
    I believe he was the first one in using this kind of design lines for spaceships
    and makes me dream like a kid since the first time I saw it.
    Also I think it is outstanding the obvious balance, rhythm, repetition and economy on the
    secondary focus and background of the piece.

    Correction, I tought I was bit darker behind the ship, in the gas cloud

    Up the contrast on the most recent one..just play with the levels a bit. You are a little softer, value wise and it needs that extra three or five percent contrast to really pop. BEAUTIFUL work though. You have made great progress.

    The prior image looks great. No real feedback there. I'd just be nitpicking at this point. Keep it up!

    Ok, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to see this one right. I overlayed an adjustment layer to control brightness and contrast separately but seems to me when I get the main focus right the other areas go off so I have ended up painting some black in the lower darker areas and retouching the gas cloud and finding somewhere in between with the levels.
