diffusion


So I've been thinking about how to do the background. If you mess it up, the whole piece is junk so I whipped up a study this afternoon to work on getting clouds right and this is it. I might have to do it over again, because it looks to splotchy.

Hi Tim,
Great coloring you did with the mountain and the little building on it (not sure what it's called). I like how it has the same color scheme but different values so it brings a feeling of harmony. I think the bright blue you picked for the sky is nice too. The texture, the light effect and the diffusion effect of blue and white are very nice.

I have some suggestion but I'm not sure if I know your ideas behind the painting cause modification in coloring may not be good if it doesn't match with your ideas.

Anyway, here they are:
-Since this is such a nice bright magical sky, I think it would be nice if somehow that magical light of the sky is reflected on the little building on top of the mountain. That will give the building a magical feeling as well, and draw a little attention to it. (But as I see that this is probably only half of a painting so I am not sure if you want to draw attention to that little building, the attention is probably the higher mountain top on the right)
-If you can make the white clouds look more like floating (I guess just a little 3D dimension) on the blue background, then I think the blue layer would be deeper and the sky looks more real.

Again, I think the painting looks very nice already in its current state.

some grey lowlights in the clouds (in the right places) might give the clouds a little more definition, as well as keep the piece from becomming too "hallmark". likin' it so far. keep trucking.

Hi Tim. I'm a friend of Gibbs. Been digging on your artwork and thought I should let you know. I noticed that you like Durer, you should also check out Martin Schongauer's stuff. Keep it up.

I like this at it stands. It has a slightly unfinished quality, but that's half the charm. Or maybe I'm off my rocker.
