    salsa....and Mushrooms

    hello here are my first two proper paintings...ever..

    Welcome you are off to a good start,
    If I may comment on the first one the character should be positioned more on top of the mushroom as at the moment he seems to be in front of it. Not forgetting to add a narrow dark shadow under him to anchor him to the mushroom .

    I agree. This guy knows what he is talking about. Right now the charater looks like a sticker stuck to the mushroom painting.

    Smile

    I like these a lot
    I especially like the lips of the woman (is it a woman?), and the heart you carved into the stem of the mushroom.

    Sort of a Cindi Lauper kind of girl, I'd say. Maybe a bit of a loner. A little wild. Sort of tough talking. I like her already. The pose is great. Has a little tomboy in her.

    The ropey tree trunk looks like it could move at any moment. From the Enchanted Forest?

    great start. I really like how you did the wings on Mushroom. and I liked the concept of a tree as a couple dancing the Salsa very much.

    I don't know who or what salsa is (it's either a type of dance or sauce in Italian according to my knowledge) , but the image is quite beautiful! Welcome

    you are so right about the shadow....and the position....

    in my excitement of paint and knife i got totally engrossed...but yes...i see it know...

    like a slap in the face...hahah.

    i cheated with the tree dancers...i wanted to see if i could paint just SOMETHING to be proud of.
    so i stuck a pair of salsa dancers as a trace and whacked the paint on thick and chunky..
    betcha all knew that anyway..

    i am in awe of all this art on this site..so.
    thankyou so much for taking the time to look and give your help..

    its a girl... moody .... well -issed off really..waiting is such a waste.
