Actually, it looks lovely and appetizing.
Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment, Ontheroad :) I wonder if more people liked it at the previous stage - but I thought it needed some more visual oomph.
Rhonda,Definitely like #2 best. It is much more 3dimensional. It has a moodiness about it, especially the foreground.
Its amazing how you have changed the whole feel of this piece. It really works. Happy 2012 Rhonda and lots of successful paintings.
Very interesting how different they look from each other. I like #2 better, also.
You made the painting certainly more interesting, Rhonda! It almost looks like a forest in the background!
I agree: the second one has more pizazz and the dark shapes give it energy and more 'personality.'
Wowza, Rhonda! I immediately loved the light and darks on the pepper. So life like. LOVE the second piece. Now that's drama! It so works!
Thanks so much, Katrina, Joan, Deb, Judy, Jane and Pam for commenting on this - I was afraid everyone would say, "You should have left it alone!"
They look as though they are lying on the bank of a stream or creek with the forest behind them. Quite a beautiful and interesting piece, Rhonda.
I think the first one might have worked if you had framed it differently. There seemed to be too much dead space in the foreground. The second is much more interesting and looks more spontaneous. Definitely #2.
Thanks, Sherry!Kevin, thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment - you are right about this one - more planning stages were needed to make it work before I was "done" and said, "This is boring, now what?" But again, I considered it a study trying to incorporate the loose and wet-in-wet techniques into my own things. Thanks for the email, too! I will reply today.
