Your mastery of the paint is very evident. The color scheme might need a little work. There is a heavy usage of dark blue that has the effect of making the work seem slightly unbalanced. There is also a compositional issue. A medium sized dark blue shape falls nearly full in the center of the picture, and it's all the viewer can focus on. While it can be effective to rock the conventional boat a little, I'm not sure if this shape is intentional in that sense. So much of this piece is based on your expressive movements. It is this fact that makes your work intriguing. However, the fact remains that this shape, in its current usage, acts as a stopping point. Overall it's a wonderful piece that displays a wealth of expression. With a few tweaks, this work has a lot of potential. Keep doing what you do. Seeing your work in my mail constantly inspires my to keep improving. Happy Holidays o<
First I must say I've been watching you on youtube for about 2 years and I'm blown away everytime you show us something new. I get the same feelings with this painting. The title you named it shows well. I think the colors are pure and necessary, though I think some light blue-gray would've contrasted well with the blues. For instance, the face is pretty dark, and I love the way you portray faces in all your pieces so I would've liked to see it done here. Over all, lovely work. I love the splashes of the red and orange. It gives it a sense of warmth while surrounded by the cold blues. Hope your holidays are great.
