Incredible! The colors look beautiful together, the contrast between different terrains looks really good and even realistic. Especially the bright light is lovely. Very beautiful, I'd love to have it on my wall.
The colours in this are absolutley stunning I really like how you've put into the darker blues to create calm areas so that the oranges and yellows don't totally overwhelm you, too. It's just beautiful all around
Wonderful piece of work - the colours work brilliantly and vibrabtly together.
I, too, at one time used the palette knife, so understand how difficult (well, it was for me anyway) it can be at times. You sky and mountain strokes are obviously done with a diagonal motion while the sea-reflection done horizontally. These two stroke directions, of course, divides up the picture, so I'm wondering what would be the outcome if you just stuck to one stroke direction for all. If, say, you decided to have all strokes horizontal, then while the sea section would work for you okay, your sky section would loose that wonderful diagonal effect that you've acheived here. On the hand, if, say, you went all out for the diagonal direction, then, while your sky wouldn't be affected, the sea section would be very much harder to do, I would imagine. It seems, just from looking at your work, that the latter stroke (diagonal) might be your forte, and that you may be more comfortable with. Just another observation, are you a right-handed artist? If so, try changing hands everynow and then - see what happens to those strokes.
Amazing work! I just love the vibrant colours that you have used, they really capture the mood and atmosphere of the piece, you can almost feel the heat of the sun! The only thing I can say, if I am being really critical, is that a little of the sky beneath the sun laps over the hills, but it is only a minor thing (as it could just be how the rocks are reflecting the sunlight), and I know how tricky oil paint can be to work with. That said, this is a truly beautiful piece of artwork! Very well done! Hope to see more like this!
