How about a 'critiques' gallery.
I know many artists are sensitive about other people making suggestions about changes they could make to paintings - after all whose to say the artist didn't intend to imply detail, rather than explicitly paint it in...
So, I was wondering if anyone was interested in us having a gallery specifically for getting critiques, criticisms, suggestions, hints and help on their paintings.
That's not to say you're not allowed to critique elsewhere, but the understanding on this forum is that if you post, you do so with the intention of getting other artists to point out ways they feel you could achieve a result more closely aligned with what you intended.
For example, I *know* I didn't intend my clouds to look like marshmallow. But unless I invite suggestions on ways to make it look more like a photograph of cumulus clouds, who is to know.
So, if you were to post an image to the critiques gallery, you do so in the knowledge that the image may well be pulled apart, suggestions offered on ways to improve or change it. It's not an invitation for people to denigrate works or belittle artists. But it is an invitation to discuss ways to get results more closely aligned to your intentions.
