This is beautiful! Love the colors, specially of the rocks of dirt beside the road. This illustration is so free.. well just like you painted it.. fast and free and came out great! :o)
Thanks, Alicia! I think I just didn't fret as much over this one. Maybe that's a better approach to take with all of them!
I love this one, it's so full of movement and emotion! It feels dangerous but exciting too. Really wonderful.
i absolutely love this piece. the linear strokes with the blues in the rocky landscape really adds a sense of motion to this. very very nice!
Thanks, Eric and Christine! I really appreciate your comments.
A wonderful feeling of speed here!I'm always a little frightened of going fast on a horse - big chicken that I am!
I'm working faster now too. My best time is .05 seconds. Oh, you meant the illustration!hehe.Sorry, couldn't help it. The first thing that came to mind with this piece: Degas. Great!Frankfrankwdormer.com
"Don't think, just do..." I'll have to write that one on a piece of paper in my studio to remind me.This one looks great. He actually looks like he is going even faster than the sketch. Maybe the value distribution. Also, I did not notice the houses in the first one. Now that I go back and see it again, I do. That little bit really adds to the piece.
Thanks, Elizabeth! I know what you mean-- I used to be more of a daredevil on a horse, but now I think about how much it would hurt if I fell!Frank D.-- Ha! Wow-- that's some record... will have to strive for that. Thanks for your nice comment! :-)Thanks, Frank-- I've actually been thinking a lot more about values when I start to paint, and how they relate to the colors. (Your posts have been quite helpful with that!)
Wow, very cool! There is such a spontaneity and "movement" in this illustration! Sometimes it really is better to work faster and not labor over a piece. I am learning this myself.
Thanks, Kate! Believe me, I have to keep re-learning that lesson, too. Glad to see you're doing the challenge! I'll start Monday... :-)
