Woodland Walk by Dawn McGuire

Woodland Walk

This is my first attempt at landscape with acrylic. I have great difficulty with depth and perspective. I am not sure if i should change this in some way especially the horizon point. Any comment on how to improve it, I will be glad to hear. As I have much to learn.
Ok well i feel as if i am in the middle of this wonder of colour, it feels to me like you have the feeling of depth and perspective, is that a statue at the end? Anyway i really like it for the texture and colour, I have much to learn too so I will leave it to our resident experts to critique, I love it xx

nice work....i think it is beautiful art just as it is...if you are struggling with depth maybe in this painting think about the light and where it comes from...if it is towards the end path then your foreground (the part closest to the paintings edge) should be darker...and right reverse if it were the other way around...this can be achieved by using less of teh bright colour applications at the darker areas...i love the colour usage BTW...

I love this, you have to stand back from the computer to get the full effect. I'm not an expert, just learning, but to me this is very skillfully done and there's a real feeling of distance.

I like it. I don't know how comment this picture and what advise. Maybe at begining picture U could deside, what is your goal. If U want simply play with colour and show mood, U do this. if U want made perspective and laws optics....contrast and hot colour make things closer. nuance, cold colours make depth. U could find in google laws optics and perspective- It's very interesting. I like this composition. Wish U good luck!:)))*****

The constant flow of serious quailty work on this site is INCREDIBLE!!..

A Real Big THANKYOU to Everybody for their Amazing support and interest in my work and for sharing their work and veiws with me....

Was your preferred style of painting apparent from the beginning? A culmination of experiences? Or a studied effort in a specific direction?
Nice style on this one. Although I've researched, quest for artistic knowledge, and experiment, I seem to have my own style. I taught myself and have been... view answer
