Re: Retirement

Isn't it fabulous we all have different takes on a piece of writing. : I hope you can take something positive from my offering.

Re: Causey Pike

My wife bought me some canvas boards for Christmas, which was very thoughtful of her, but they were a bit coarse, too rough for delicate brush work. So, here is my first palette knife painting for your perusal. I used the small trowel shaped knife all the way through. Trickier than you might imagin...

Re: Hole in the wall

AH Pauline! The photo shows the bridge perfectly. That's pretty much what I meant. I knew that was was you meant JJ. However, that was not what I was aiming for. That was simply a reference photo so I could try and capture the angle of the bridge. Incidentally, I think it's quite brilliant of you t...

Re: Hole in the wall

Hi Mac. Thanks for dropping by. The photograph has a number of transitions: there is a band of light on the grass, then a distinct band of shadow, and finally the light seen through the 'hole' to the sky. It certainly does. However, this is a daytime photograph. It's not my reference photo. I only p...

Re: Hole in the wall

Hi Not. I disagree with JJ (sorry JJ) about making the bridge stand out more, if anything I'd go in the other direction. The brightness of the white in the wall makes me expect more of a reflective glare from the glass in the window. I did want it dark but like JJ says, it's easy to overlook the bri...

Re: Hole in the wall

It must look great in the flesh, Pauline. The size alone will be a real eye-catcher. It's a great size canvas JJ. Pretty much all my paintings are this size. Look at the one you did of the gull flying over that fabulous stormy sea. I'm sure that made viewers eyes pop. :D Your stonework is excellent...

Re: Trow Rock from the Dunes

I will, include a couple of figures at the top of Trow Rock to indicate some scale for the casual viewer. That has certainly made a difference JJ. I can now appreciate the scale of the waves. The ferocity of the sea. Thanks for taking a gander and special thanks for yesterday's astute critique. :wi...

Now, I hate saying this, but I know you want an honest critique, as I would, so I have to tell you your big wave looks rather staid. It needs more fluidity. ...

I am so sorry Ross.
Please ignore my previous posts.
How condescending do I come across.
That honestly was not how I meant to portray my message.
All I wanted to say was your video did not come across as a confident piece.
Sorry for being an arse.

The pink/red/ orange rock, the blue/green and the ochre rock pull me towards them every time my eyes start to wander away to explore. There’s a lot of movement in this painting. ...
