Three paintings

[edit: the userpic is an older painting. ;) ]

It's apparently been over a year since the last time I painted. And it had been eons more since the time before that, before I painted with any sort of pretense of regularity.

The one that was completely fresh, I don't quite like--but it's growing on me. The two others were started a few months ago, but left to dry to be painted over. I think I did a great job salvaging them. :)


The Sun Wakes


Hungry Sea


Cosmic Heart Flare

(clicky to embiggen some--with a warning that they're not the best photos :/ )

Nice! I know nothing about art, but I know what I like. And I love the way you've used the colors on Flare and Sea. Very nice indeed - perhaps you should do more of this painting thing!

Thanks. :) The painting thing comes and goes. I'm thrilled that I was able to salvage those two:

heart had had a very dark core and no balance; I changed the deep red to the flowing red/yellow, added the orange flames (actually added a bunch more but the orange/red went over them as I figured out what I was doing), and added the top and right yellow lines for balance).

Hungry Sea was just plain (and also unbalanced). There'd been no sea, just a strip of graying brown. But blue-ing things, making it flow, and pulling it up into the other parts of the painting really helped.

Thanks for the comment!

I think they worked very well.

Now you need to wait for the art critics (I'm sure there are plenty out there!).

LOL @ critic... makes me think of the intro to History of the World, Part I. :-D
