    man in snow

    Hi,

    I'm still lacking a good name for the image. "Man in snow" is a little too obvious.

    Please give me advice on how to go on. I like the image but it doesn't feel quite finished yet.

    I feel it conveys enough exactly how it is. The downward gaze, surrounded by the vast expanse of snow... If you want to convey confusion, despair, I would call it "Lost." If you want to convey curiosity, adventure, I would call it "Wanderer." But I think that a wanderer might have his head held high, not lowered in ... defeat? exhaustion? It seems to me to be a more sombre image.

    Whatever you decide to name it, it's beautiful. I wouldn't add a thing.

    The only thing that crossed my mind when looking at the picture is that I wanted the man to be further to the right. I guess it is the basic rule of thirds idea -- I wanted more space for the man to walking into.

    Very nice picture, by the way.

    Indeed, very nice.

    To me, it seems as if he's looking at something on the ground. You could place a small object at the exact spot he's looking at -for example, maybe a teddy bear half buried in the snow- and the painting might feel more finished then. Just an idea...

    Hi and thanks a lot. Those are very good comments. I totaly agree with both of them. I will try placing the person more to the right. I already had the idea to place something at the spot where he's looking at, but couldn't think of anything good. A teddy bear is a very nice idea. Maybe I will come up with an idea myself...

    I have implemented the ideas, but I don't really think it's much better. The mood isn't loneliness anymore, but unrealistic curiosity, and Loneliness was a stronger emotion.

    what do you think?

    Hi Wheiraucher,

    I think that's about finished.
    Lovely painting, much better for the composition change.

    I look forward to the next one.
