It would be good to see something
of yours that you considered an
improvement on "Sorrow"...!

Thanks, I'll ponder a proposal for a
commission...

absolutely... an improvement on "Sorrow"....?
A figure-portrait? One of the few areas to improve
on that would be with a broader palette...
....that pose is flattering, graceful, suggestive,
and has flawless aesthetics...I am partial to classical
poses, but that modernity (?) succeeds...

Have you seen delumine'sd work by any chance?
I believe that his color palette is wonderful...

I agree with your comment on a broader palette. My first teacher preferred a limited palette (its also easier for a new artist), but as I have become more competent I've played more with colours. What is amazing is how one starts to see colours in a far more nuanced manner, but that only really comes with experience.

Yes I've seen the artist's work, I have one of his paintings in my favourites :)

Yes indeed. A simpler palette is much much easier.
At any skill level, I think. I have done some good drawings
- but greatly aided that they are monochromatic!
Color I've often added afterward, as a very separate project,
and sometimes it just doesn't work, to add color to 
a bw drawing...sometimes it does... I wish I could
paint better, but not yet...monochromatic drawing,
and separate coloration, are still relatively easy for  moi
albeit drawing well takes me an age lol ... 

Wholly digital, the abstract, and nonrepresentational
are a different matter!

I've checked out your gallery, I like your drawing. Abstract art is so completely subjective though, either you like or you don't. In my case I'm simply not experienced enough to appreciate it. I see you are mostly digital. I ran away from my computer and haven't looked back (unless to check mails!). There is something terribly exciting about oil paint which i figure is worth exploring (imo).

Art shouldn't be rushed, its like a pregnancy... it will damn well come when its ready!!

I love your use of cool blues with the creamy skin tones and boxing them in the frame! This is a very beautiful and sadly calming piece. Thank you for sharing this. Your work is fantastic.

You could have fooled me---this looks like watercolours. Do you ever do tutorials?
