Hi Ralph, I like the colors in this one and the composition. I wouldn't mine seeing some darks in the ropes and between the planks in the the foreground. Also, I would warm up the white clothes a bit. They seem to be demanding too much attention. If you cover the white with your finger and look at the rest of the painting, it settles down beautifully, but as soon as you remove your finger, the white wants all the attention. The colors are great here Ralph, I suggest darkening or yellowing the white a bit and see what happens. Brian
Thanks Brian! Will do.
Hi Ralph, I'm dying to see some gusty brush strokes it's all a bit fine for my taste, especially when consider the size of the canvas. May be in the foreground on the ropes. Hope this helps, Julie
Hi Ralph...Just by coincidence your painting caught my eye. I like the romantic scene very much and I too think it could do with some shady strokes.Would love to see it again.
Thanks Sophia! for your comment. Anyone who as read Eckhart Tolle I have the greatest respect for! Good going!
