This is my third critique by Daniel Edmondson. I think it went pretty well. I agreed with the recommendations about the reflected light on the pear, some darker reds being put into some of the olives and I think some different greens too. I am not sure about there being too light of strokes in the background. I’m looking at the painting right now and I’m thinking I might have some glare that is exaggerating it. I don’t know. Maybe I just like it that way. Yikes! Taking pictures is not my thing but I am working on that as well. I also kinda like the fuzzy background on one side mixed with the tighter background on the other. It was my attempt at being arty? I am trying to loosen up! It was a compromise. Slowly but surely. Anyway, the critique is below.
This is an 11 X 14 still life of a pear in a martini glass with lots of olives. More fruit again this week in the painting class. I went rogue. I didn’t paint grapes and I wanted lots of green. I changed the colors of the painting and went with olives.
