Academy - Week Seven

Mark English's assignment (bad photo). I'm pooped.

I LOVE the colors in this, and the vantage point is very cool too. Oh and I love the tile floor. The ONE thing I would change would be to extend the floor in the top left corner so that the wall starts where the bottoms of the picture frames currently are (that sentence was so far from being grammatically correct). I'm curious to hear what was said in the critique.

ummmyeah.... that's the booth their sitting in. I guess a second value might have cleared that up a bit. It goes tile floor, booth, wall with photos. You can sort of see a slight value change in the photo.

It was a strange critique, probably meant to speed it along because it was Friday afternoon. We put ten or more up at a time. Mine was identified as one of the more successful pieces. I think Jane had issues with how the lower figure was drawn. I think that was the only negative. "Big Daddy" helped me fine tune the composition before I started painting.

I like it too Tyler but I think it could use a brighter light., seems like I am looking at the scene through sunglasses. If big daddy say sit looks good then it looks good! Still don't get the value thing in Mark's assignment description.
I am sending you two dvds with scans of Ludwig's work and david johnson's work for your viewing pleasure!
get some rest - Don

Some of that is the bad photography and the rest is the oil wash I used to tie it all together temperature-wise.

Like Cat said, the vantage point on this is awesome. I like how you have still capture some emotion in the people, even though they have no facial expressions. It looks to me like the girl is sulking a little bit, maybe she feels like she spent too much money at the store (the bag), and he patting her back and saying, "it's okay you deserved those $100 shoes". :)
