""Take from the rest of us all that you can assimilate,
that can become a part of you, but never still the small voice that whispers to you, "I like it better my way".----Andrew Loomis----.
hey pat...good to know that my old R.A. is still keepin it real.
nice studies man. the play on light is nice but it seems like your treating most areas about the same in terms of detail....in some of them it works but some need to be pushed a little more to give it a little more intrest. like the painting with the mountain...those green strokes are just a little too slap dash...
i really love the one with figures in space...schlob...something if im reading it correct. that one is really nice. good play of perspective and fading.
id love to see what youve been up to
wow, these really are beautiful. Really inspirational, especially the fact that you got the chance to travel so much.
I am a Ringling CA first year and remember seeing your stuff a couple years ago, it is awesome to see you pop back up around here and that you have been afforded the ability to get to see the world a bit.
I hope everything is going well for you. keep rockin the gouache.
These are really nice PT. I love the ferris wheel and the one with the red palm trees. Great work!
small suggestion: I'd add a slightly more saturated red at the edges of the red palm trees so we get a glow at the edges to show the highly saturated colors of sundown.
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
hey folks, thanks for the kind words..
Iwasink- thanks for the suggestion nothing wrong with a little digital manipulation now for experimentation's sake right?
crunch- paul.. whats up.. and yeah I get the chance to do some real art on occassion .. It was nice to get some time off between polar express and my next project. to do this sort of thing..
PZ.. have fun in CA.. such an incredible program..
