Summer Clouds by memod Summer Clouds by memod
On the train back to Berlin the sky was so fascinatingly beautiful, that I couldn't help but try to paint something in that spirit. Although, seeing it on a screen other than the cintiq now, I feel like the colours and contrasts are off...maybe I will revise it in a few days. Or maybe not. :paranoid:

In any case, am trying to work on my brushwork and on simplification...hope you guys enjoy it!
Daniel :heart:

Wow I love the brush works you have going on! I do think the cloud are quite solid looking, but some how I personally like the more graphic look it gives the painting.

Thank you! :aww: I am glad you enjoy the brushwork =] I am really trying to paint more attention to that lately. It's a whole 'nother world :D
You are not the first to point to the solid look. Maybe next time I should pay a little more intension to making it more cloud-like. It probably comes down to some subtler colour play, hmm...

Lovely landscape, great brush work. Cloud at the top looks a bit too solid and heavy perhaps?
colours a great, really warm and summery. :)

Most people work on introducing details, you work on simplifying:D

Because simplification helps with the readability of the piece and with establishing a focus. I begin to realize more and more the importance of strong shapes and I am trying to get there myself. One day! ...

You reminded me of a quote from King James' Bible... strange, isn't it?

Beautiful work! I just love how heavy and dominating the clouds seem compared to all the dainty details like the birds and the building in the distance. Landscapes arent my strong point so I dont have any critique, but keep up the good work! : )

Thanks a lot, Nyssa :aww: I am really glad, that you like it =] Playing off large versus small is always fun.
And no worries...it seems like right after I submitted the piece all the things that bothered me about it became glaringly obvious, haha. I already know what to work on with the next one :D
