I somehow think it might be too... Pretty? I don't know.
Today's work. I'm back to doing more calligraphic, more informal expressive work. But this time on canvas, and big. The first two works are only 40cm x 60cm, the third is 50cm x 80cm, the last one is 60cm x 80cm.
Helpful comments and critique much appreciated!
I've also taken a whole bunch of pictures of me. I had this great lipstick on and a very nice background!
(selfies, some with eye contact)
@TQ found inspiration then! I love the glow of the 3rd pic
@nicknicely I need to follow the path a bit longer, but at least I'm working again.
@TQ uhhh dancing plants! ✨
@TQ don't make me rethink my decision which one to buy!!
@TQ I definitely see n improvement:D I was bugged by the background being too even on the first two :)
@dustyqueersheep yes, me too. Thanks!
@TQ Looks like those animals in the sea which have natural illumination - a small colony of them.
@Cedara yes, i was reminded of them while I was painting. 😊
@TQ this one gives me some serious "come deeper into the forest" vibes!
@Sissas That's cool!
@TQ this one looks kind of bland to me.
@TQ I really love this one too. First I also saw deep sea creatures and then I read the comment about floating seeds in the woods and now I am even more amazed by it.
@luricaun ☺️ Thank you!
@TQ i like this one very much. i see the lighness and soft movement of the jellyfish like lights , beings or stars.
@TQ and i like the space it has and creates. the ones up left make it that i seem to look from a bit afar and below for example.
@rottenmeier Thank you. It's great that even though I'm somehow not content, you and others really seem to like it!
@TQ It's like star jellyfish!
@communeva Thank you! I'm trying to push as far as I can get this week. I'm still not 100% happy, but I'm slowly developing some ideas what I want to do next, honing in on techniques I like and such.
@TQ Wonderful picture! Reminds me either of travelling through a far 👍 away galaxy where no one has before or diving in a deep sea and observe fluorescent jellyfish
@TQ this is really beautiful!! i love the floaty, glowy effect. one thing you could do is make some of the shadows darker? i love all of the shimmery colors fading into each other and i think it could really pop if there were some areas in the shadows where there was a true black or something closer to it
@toreachpoise I was trying to make the background dark without the use of black. I didn't particularly like how it looked in the first 2 paintings of this series, so I tried to abstain from black completely.
But yes, more depth. Noted. 😊 Thank you!
@TQ Looks like deep sea jellyfish. I like it.
@eric 😊 thanks!
