Title: Goosy goosy gander
Post by: Gita on September 09, 2017, 02:34:40 PM
This is an old acrylic from 2011 upon which I painted some depth and details again. I really don't know if I have managed to get the depth.
Please do tell me your thoughts about this. Anything to add or make better?  :)

It wasn't there when I first looked, so I went to get the bbc code to repost for you.  When I came back, there was the goose!  More PB weirdness!

It's cute.  Looks like a maestro leading the orchestra.

I love your goose, Gita. He does look like a maestro!  :2funny:
 The only thing that I can think of that might give it more depth would be to create more contrast between the water and sky. Right now the water and sky are really close in color. If you make that horizon more noticeable you might get more depth. Just my thoughts, but wait and see if anyone agrees.  :)

Thanks to Emma Lees suggestion, I corrected the values between the sky and the distant sea. Added two distant flying birds.
And I think the result is a lot better what the depth is considered. Hope you also think the same?

That´s the best compliment I have EVER had, Mea!  O0 O0. Wish the same, Mea. Especially since I do not have a sister in real! Grew up with two brothers who influenced me to be more of a "tom boy".  ::).  :2funny:

You and me both Gita, I do have a younger sister but my siblings are more interested in music and other interests.  :heeha: I feel another illegal adoption in the offing!  :2funny:

Oh Gita - with the lightening up of the sky and the addition of the birds you now have a wonderful painting! So glad you kept this from 2011 and gave it new life!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: so much Liz, I have learnt so much from Nolan and Dennis and the feedback from all of you in the past months that when I see my older Paintings, I felt like applying this acquired knowledge!

 Sharon, thank you so much!
