    holy crap - nice work...

    the first is my favorite, although i find the way you did that diagonal light on the nearest roof a little distracting in an otherwise epic paint.

    great shit though, look foward to seeing more!

    Cheers

    Eri

    wow..the value..the color..te texture...absolutely insane. that first one reads so damn well. at first glance it's like "ok, photo" but then all the paint strokes hit you.

    I agree with Eriboss though, I'm not digging the lighting strokes on the roof of the first one at all.

    the first one looks like a photo with some oilpaint filter on it, but im sure its not. incredible detail and realism.

    glikster:thanks very much!

    Eriboss:thank you,i kinda like the contrast in handling there,(the roof),dont know why really....got some more stuff in the works though!

    KenDeathwalker:yes,i work from life...these all started as plein air sketches that i reworked...the one on the top i reworked from life,the other 2 i did in the studio.

    Geophillyx:will do

    goatlight:hi!..thanks!

    fukifino:ive gotten several "photo" comments,but honestly i dont see the similarity,it reads as "realist"-ic to me(like done from life)...but doesnt resemble a photo at all...
    the roof was done quickly,and i intended to work it abit more,but the flatness of it was an interesting effect...kind of like something to enhance the fact that this is a painting....does that make any sense?(ill probably go back and finish it anyway... )thanks very much!

    Mort:thanks

    ach! the lighting on the first piece makes it wonderful! its very expressive and impulsive and gives life to this otherwise boring scene. aside from the lighting the texture is just fantastic on the mailbox and walls.

    Thats what kind of irks me about this site. Ive never really understood how you can critique art outside of composition or intended effect. Any sort of stylization is almost immediately pointed out and criticized. Do what you want i say, that is of course unless it is comissioned..bleh bleh

    Wow, that second one is intense! It feels like you're interpreting the scene more in this one than the others. The third looks to me like a straightforward painterly piece, and the first looks so everyday realistic at first glance that I almost skipped it. I know where you're coming from with the strokes of the first one, but I'm not digging it either. It's like 95% of your marks are weaving a tapestry of painterly realism, and the last 5% are these big dirty threads hanging out. For me the realism makes it feel out of place instead of arresting my view and making me think in terms of paint. You're the boss, though, so you need to please yourself.

    That said, holy crap I'd better practice hard if I ever wanna be able to do this. I'm glad I saw this great stuff, thanks!



    *sidenote: As far as stylized art goes, we here at ca don't summarily reject it. Check out how much we love manu is malin and you'll eat your freakin' words.

    yikes, on rereading my comment, it comes off as very hostile, i think i was just irked from earlier that day. i havent been lurking in these forums for more than a couple of months, and i guess i had forgotten all the interesting pieces i'd seen.

    manu is malin eh?

    Wow the first one is near photo like, great stuff, but whats going on with that building to the far right in #2? Is that silver/blue like panel part of that red building or is it something in front of it idk something about that looks odd what gives? What it really looks like is that it silver/blue panel is the roof top of ahouse sunk into the ground.
