Critique 11 X 14 Two Sunflowers in  Vase Still Life Oil Painting

This is a critique of a painting I did not too long ago by Daniel Edmonsdon.  I had the hardest time even listening to what he was saying. I couldn’t get over the horribly glared back ground and the really dirty petal.  I sat there and nit picked the whole painting and then the critique was over and I went about painting something else.   When my husband got home, we watched it together.  This time I listened to what he was saying and was very pleased with the advice and noticed he was answering some questions I sent him in a very practical way.  He even told me how to easily adjust my color to fix that petal which I didn’t even hear the first watch around.

    1. Thank you so much. I was just beginning to figure out my own style. I think this was one of the first ones where I kinda said..that is it. I am painting the way I paint and I am going to work with it and develop that style.

  1. Very generous of you to post this DawnMarie, we can all learn from this. My wife really likes this painting! I like it but I like the other one – landscape with the sunflowers in the foreground even more.

    1. Aww thank you. Tell your wife thank you also. I can’t decide if I prefer landscapes or still life. I think anything with flowers in it makes me glad to paint but I am with you on this one. I prefer the landscapes to this painting at least.

    2. The first critique I posted on the blog I was so nervous! But I am glad I did because helpful tips are helpful tips and maybe others can use them too.
