it is fantastic,m really thank you for sharing your art, it is only to learn watching your painting
Under two hours?! Wow! I love it.
That's very quick, and yet it doesn't look rushed.She has a wonderful, introspective expression.
You have numerous live subjects for this kinda painting, JS.
Love the head and face, with lines that remind me of Jan. 7's Woman with Red Stripes, which I guess I prefer for now--it seems more finished.
The painting is great. When things are flowing, time doesn’t really matter, except maybe to the model holding the pose.
I like the colors. I wonder if you get to take artistic license with things like color, or do you try and paint things exactly as they are?
Good job Jean. Like the quirky right arm and interesting break up of space. Smart use of green for framing
wow, Jean!this painting is fantastic!harmonious colors, everything perfect!
I know nothing, except that I'm one of your admirers. But much as I like the face and the wall, the arms bother me. I don't feel their weight. But I'll visit again; no doubt it's all in my mind.
You convey "pensive" extremely well.
Woman With Red Stripes was on my desktop for a few days, then this photo of a rabbit doodle:http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=1529815290672&set=a.1100488597773.2015594.1393424027it's on FeeBee so I don't know if you can see it.and now this study. The palette is always the key for me and this just rocks my boat.wv mentelliI'm absoloutely mentelli about your work.
You're a master at capturing emotion - and with such broad strokes. Wonderful.
Alice Neele / Egon Shiele two of my three favorite figurative artists. The third might scare you
This is tremendous and evocative, Jean. I'm astonished that it took just two hours. Holy cow.
Thanks, all. Sorry I've been neglecting the comments. It was just to much to manage while traveling.Margaret, I almost always "take artistic license" with color, shape, design. You can get some idea of this by looking at the two paintings I've posted for 1/17/2011. Same model, same pose, in the same place, yet there is considerable difference between them, and neither is precisely "what was."
Paula, I couldn't view the rabbit doodle; either access is restricted or it's not there anymore. Anyway, I'm thrilled you're using some of these for your computer desktop.
AH, interesting about the arms. I'm in a creative "place" right now where I don't feel as in touch with creativity as I might. So I'm suspending judgment and giving these paintings time untouched, until I can look again and better evaluate.Taking the break to travel and just doing a few doodles while I was away was a good thing.
I have two paintings that might be ones you've done. Can I send you a pic of them...I have been trying to locate the artist, since inheiriting them. Kristinek_galla@hotmail.com
Kristine, I don't think the paintings could be mine. I have not been painting that long.Good luck in your search.
