View Full Version : The road to Hogsback - attempting to get light and perspective...

Some attempts at light and perspectives, this is really my focus to improve on at the moment, and landscape painting in general.

Some criticism or improvements would be most welcome!

Don't be shy!!!

georgioum.. nice works especially the top one... my only observation is there is too much flat white.... if you want to give the illusion of a bright light you should still keep that as a very small part of the work.. and all the surrounding road , trees and even the focal point should not be flat white but have some detail in it , using a lighter and lighter tones, more toward gray will make the point.. just my opinion...;):D

as I'm not able to give advice, I'm just gonna tell you that I like those paintings :) well done!

soooo... if I walk down the road in the first painting, entering the light, moving on to the second painting - I will then find a melting path and sparkling trees .. which will lead me to --- ??? ;)

looking forward to seeing more of your "attempts" :) :)

Thank you your comment gxhpainter, i agree actually! way too much white, i am only using my mouse, and as such this is quite tricky, i need ti invest in a wacom sometime!

Anything else?

MSIE, perhaps after walking through the dense forest for a while, you may reach this exit? ( thanks bill )

Any more comments would be much appreciated...
