    Great color and I really like the paint viscosity. Almost like you are painting with cake icing. Perfect for stucco.

    When you go this dynamic with texture, if you want to complete the illusion of a real space, as this is doing, you need to me a little extra obvious with the overall shapes -- seeing as the paint texture itself is loud (which I quite like). But the lower left is getting a little ambiguous as to how the planes are working. Sometimes one needs to exaggerate the differences between the planes for separation so we know what's where. You can do it by clear changes in values, in color, in direction of the strokes, etc.

    In this case, the colors that you have on one plane should not be the same as on another (as a rule -- your mileage (results) may vary.)


    How you actually do it is a matter of what looks good as you do it. Can't really say without pushing paint around.

    Anyway, the painting is rich and juicy and the comment about the vagueness in the form and how to make it read more clearly is for later pictures. This one is great. You nailed so many great aspects of the painting process on this one. WOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
