Artwork Description

Well this is the first time I have ever painted anything, without it being on a computer, it was so damn hard, and I almost died. But I thought I would post it, so I could veiw how I progressed. This is oil on a wood panel.

I like how one of the doves is white ---yet is NOT an opaque white but is instead a translucent white! Jay at mudstones2@aol.com

I love this. Your women are so real in a mystical fantasy sort of way. I just mean they look like real people and not the typical fantasy babes. Really great work. I love your use of white.

Wow. Such beautiful colors. The whites in the doves are incredible! I love the hair and costume as well. Very nice job.

Wow - I like your digital paintings, but I like this a lot better. First time? I'm being really impressed over here...

Huzzah!! Traditional media! I still maintain there's an energy and an immediacy about traditional media that is lacking in the digital format, even the ones that closely approximate brush-stroke and such. Wonderful piece! I say, keep the brush in your hand for a while....

First time in oils? Well you wouldn't know it to look at this piece. I love it! You have wonderfuly expressive brush strokes. A beautiful quality of gestural feel to this also. I love the birds!

This is lovely! And it proves that you have talent, whether digital or oils, or whatever you apply yourself to. This is fantastic for a first oil!!

Not that I think badly of your computer paintings - on the contrary I think they're brilliant, but I would love to see more from you in oils, and where you will go with them once you've mastered the medium. Very lovely work! I hope the next one you do is kinder to your constitution.

Art at its best.
