Reference picture: stock by ~NickiStock fav.me/d10mau3, thank you (:

:bulletpurple: Closeup:


My very first attempt at landscape & scenery (this is a closeup), I risked to work with Arches paper and it was worth it (: I will appreciate tips on this (for me) new subject!

Follow my 31 day painting challenge during May 2013 :la:




This artwork was done with watercolor (Schmincke Horadam) on 300g rough Arches paper, original is 24 x 32 cm / 9.4 x 12.6 "

PRINTS, laptop skins



:frail: Would you like a portrait of yourself or someone you love?

This is my first Critique so bear with me if I said anything that will offend you or doesn't make sense!
Vision: 4 1/2 - because you can clearly see the focus of the painting, Mostly the buildings are the focus so I would have renamed the painting.
Originality: 5 - this is very original piece of art! it shows the theme you are going for and yourself in it. I would have loved to see a little bit of more detail in the houses on te right-hand side thought.
Technique: 5- the contrast of the colors is stunning, though for me, it kind of takes the focus away of the main picture. But for others it might be the opposite!
Impact: 5- it does have a strong Impact on me. I don't know what else to say!
What do you think?

Hi jane! I would like to use this paint for my father's book cover coming out this week. It's a book about stories when he was younger. Could I? Answer me please! 

Sending admiration for your talent, 
Piera xx

I like the melancholic and reflexive atmosphere in this art, and this transmits peace and nostalgia.

This painting tells me a story of a man (and all men), who has the choice of a single door, one way, for the rest of his life. I like the feeling of pause, breathing character before its decision..=)
This painting is very moving, the choice of a little washed-out color is beautiful.

Very nice painting,Jane!:deviation:

For a first attempt landscape/scenery is very good...It's always so good to explore new way!!;)

I freaking love the buildings. The colours and the brickwork are to die for. And the way you have used the paint so wet in places is amaze.

Personally, I don't like the figure as much. I mean it's cool, but he feels a bit redundant.
