Sorry for the size and the ugly sign but is sad to see my work used by others, in any way :faint:

40 x 40 cm
Oil/acrylic on canvas
2009

This is totally different from my usual (except maybe exercise 3) and I'm kind of insecure, so your comments and critiques will be welcome...

Wow. This is very powerful! It really surprised me, it's a lot different from your usual work. :)
I love the way you use the red here, it's perfectly in balance. Which isn't easy with such an aggressive colour. The dark edge on the lower red part does a very good job on the balance, as does the white.
I like how you placed the whitest part just a bit beside the middle, attracting the eye and making the composition a lot more interesting. The red spots manage to keep it very dynamic at the same time.
You usually paint more in the blue/green range of colours, so this is a very different but very good new approach :) I would love to see more like this!

You, my friend, are painting that inner thing. All your works are dancing around this thing. Red is no stranger to you.
([link])

You are always tied to the hint of landscape. The underwater thing just adds an unworldly effect which allows ME (the viewer) to know you are showing me a visual of inner world.

I know alot of your work is inspired from real underwater photography and experience but you are still dancing around something poetic, personal and not fully defined.

I like how you handled the paint. Soft, blended white and underpainting. The dark (black) tones set up gravity and horizon. The red softly (blurry) gently added

BUT THEN

Crisp RED Textures that seem applied with knife or by tranfer like with a monoprint technique.

This has no hand made mark look. Helps the unworldly look of it.

I like the hinted vertical black(dark) marks that implie perspective and vanishing point.

But none of it is rigidly landscape or perspective or distance. A little mental flip and its all just paint and reads as nonfigurative nothing.....open for interpretation.

someones private place.

If I may... I see some influence from =sesfitts, particularly in the simple yet highly evocative palette as well as the overall structure. That... and the red :blushes:

I see trees, cloaked in flaming red leaves, gazing at their own reflections in a quiet, autumnal pond... :heart:

Jmm well yes I hadn´t notived but yes I am sure I must be influenced by Seth ('cause I watch him and love his art).

Actually I guess I have a lot of (good) influences around here :D

You nailed it about the theme too, but this is an experiment so please don´t tell more :shh:

I wish you didn't feel insecure! Your paintings express emotion. Application and technique is not always a pre-requisite of a good painting. I believe that a good painting evokes emotions. It allows all your senses to connect in one brief moment and take you to another place in your mind. Your paintings do that for me. You paint with your soul and this is so very very evident to me. Few artsists can do that. You are a true artist. keep on doing what you do so well!

Me encantó :D en cuanto lo vi en mi lista de deviations, llamó mi atención... A lo mejor porque es rojo y ese es mi color favorito xD Me hace pensar en un rio de sangre *___* <--- medio psicó;pata xD

O el canal de xochimilco, hecho de sangre xD se vería bonito si fuera asi :P

En fin, me agrada y me alegra la vista :D

definitely different, and i like. red is one of my fav colors to work with. working brown shades with it can sometimes be a little tricky.

anyways, i feel like i'm in a highly charged emotional tunnel.

Thanks :phew: I'm always insecure with red when painting. Of course you don't have that problem ;)

I used brown 'cause black was too obvious and I wanted a reduced pallette, but yeah it is tricky. This was a greenish brown so I took the risk with it.

Also I agree in that there's a lot of emotion involved here, beyond the choice of colours. It wasn't intentional though...

I see 2 rows of trees dressed in red (representative of Fall colors). Many leaves have fallen & coated the ground changing it from green to red.
