Hi Elliot, a courageous effort here. I love the blues, but the grays seem unresolved and therefore a bit chalky. Maybe throw some magenta in the shadowed gray areas and some yellow ochre or something warm in the areas affected by the light...just a thought...Brian
Thanks Brian, great suggestions... I was starting to feel the chalkiness too. I'll see what I come with and maybe re-post.
To me its a hit..its a hit..its a hit!
Hey Elliot! good to see you post. I also think it is a hit. I like the "scratchy" feel to the brush work. I don't find it chalky.
In my book it's a hit! The other painting also.
