This was a most interesting challenge to undertake-different than the previous challenges that have been submitteed. There are textures and details that needed to be dealt with in the painting. the following paintings have been submitted for this challenge.
Deborah Hoffner Rosen
9 x 12 Acrylic
Debby is a student in my UFT class. She is a very talented artist. Notice the soft flowing beautifully painted technique. The water is so delicate- reminds me of powder being sprinkled down the rocks. Great job Deborah.
"Various Veils 2"
16 x 20 Acrylic
I titled my paintings "Various Veils 2" because it took me 2 trys to get to this finished painting. I originally did the painting in an 8 x 10 and was very dissatisfied with it. After ovserving my "errors" from painting #1, (which I think my main problem: I worked too small for the details), I enlarged the subject and changed what I wanted to to make it appealing to me. I enhanced the color of the foreground, and I changed the way the water fell -especially in the last fall. For me, changing the subject to my way of thinking works best to please "my ideal" attitude to the way something should look. Please notice, I said "my ideal"---doesn not mean yours~!
Arthur Anderson did a really nice- very geometric rendition of the waterfall. Love the angles of the rocks and the water.He carried through the style of the angular movements in the foreground too!
