Do you want to have your work critiqued by me? Want someone to review your paintings and make recommendations back to you? No problem. I am happy to offer a critique service, online. I would be able to make comments in the following areas...
- Subject choice - How good was the subject you chose? Was it suitable for watercolour?
- Composition - How did you go about what to include in the painting and the position of main elements.
- Drawing skills. What are your drawing skills like in the outline sketch
- Tone and Colour
- What's the focal point?
- Style. What style are you aiming for? Loose.....Tight....Impressionistic?
- Watercolour techniques. What techniques have you chosen to use? What's your wash like? Other techniques - wet in wet, lost and found, dry brush strokes, body paint (the thick stuff!).
- Brush strokes. How confident do the brush strokes look like?
- Did you achieve your objectives and what you set out to do?
- What were the best bits and why (in my opinion)?
- What needs to be improved on (in my opinion)?
- Action plan for the next painting - assuming you want to do something similar.
I could also arrange a Skype or online call with you to review your painting at a time to suit you (call duration about 5-10 minutes).
The cost of this service is £25 GBP per painting. This can be paid via payPal.
What I need from you for this service is...
- Email me a photo of your painting (as high res as you can) or share with me a link (a URL link to the painting).
- What were you trying to achieve?
- The size of your painting
- Type of paper used
- Brushes you used (type, hair type, manufacturer)
- What manufacturer of paint did you use? Are they Pan or Tube colours?
- What colours are in your palette?
- Time taken for the painting, start to finish. Did you do it all in one go?
- Was it a 'Plein Air' or from a photo or your imagination?
- What things especially do you want me to review about the painting (everything or just certain things)?
If you need any more information about this service, please contact me.
