Walk by Crimson-Strength

"Whose woods these are, I think I know,
His house is in the village though
He will not see me stopping here
To see the woods fill up with snow."

- Robert Frost

These woods may not be filled with snow, but they have caught my eye.

What I like:

The subjects- you spent time making sure that the boy and girl walking did not blend into the background. Speaking as someone who inks, using only color to delineate shape is quite a feat.

Attention to color and shading- the shadows on the road are the most prominent example, but you know how light would fall on a person and shade them. Again, not an easy feat, and you've nailed it quite well.

What to think about:

Different brush strokes for tree bark texture- Minor nitpicking because I think you did a good job overall, but the tree trunks could have had more details added to them so that they look more organic. Here smaller brushes could add rougher detail Maybe you could try studies dedicated to certain branches. Just something to think about because trees are difficult to capture.

Best painting I've critiqued on the website; good job!

You're welcome; you deserve the praise! I wish my watercolors had as much attention to detail.
