    Streets of Scotland

    Have been vacationing with kids in England and Scotland, have tried to sketch and paint a street. Not very accurate I know, but just did it anyway.

    Love it. A bit of your earliest offerings. My guess is part of your inner landscape and heart are there.

    Scottish highlands

    Driving through the countryside is a pleasure, have tried to capture a typical scene from my memory. Sky is clear and blue, mountains green, that's how summer is here. My painting is not so clear, but my imagination is...! Requesting all to have a look please.

    Depends on what you're after. Owing to the lack of differentiation in the large shapes of color, it tends to flatten out a bit within those shapes and lack of contrast in the overall which makes it a little lukewarm. But some people seek out that look. If you want more interest, you might want to break up the areas a little bit with some variety. If you're painting to create a dreamlike image with less detail and more impression of a feeling or general idea, you are on the right track. That alludes to design considerations, which is a matter often of establishing the shapes simply and then adding design elements as accents: relating shapes and colors as masses and then perhaps adding a little bit extra for interest and definition.

    You got me right sir, it was just what you could see all along. That's why have not done details. Thanks for your observation.
