Thursday, October 18, 2007 - What Do You Think?

What do you think about artists who have a blog and list their own sites as favorites or something like that? I have run into this more and more the farther out I got in the blogosphere. Seems pretty egotistical to me but maybe you have to get people to your blog and then to your site and then to your eBay store and then...you get the picture!

I reworked the water/shadow reflections in the Beaumaris Castle painting. I think it looks better now but I still should do it over to fix that dark shadow on the castle itself...but I'm feeling lazy today and probably won't (landscapes so are NOT my thing!)

Great improvement. The greens seem tamed down too. The painting feels very British to me, so I think you've conveyed a good message. Wonder how impressive it would be painted really big on a full sheet??? You did such a good job with the castle textures and you could play that up on a bigger painting. I know yu'll enjoy whichever way you choose.

A full sheet? Of a landscape painting??? Are you trying to kill me? ha-ha I have started another small one, trying to get it more the way I want it - we'll see what happens...thanks for looking, though I'll never do a full sheet landscape, never never never...hardly ever!!
