I like this. Why did you go from crisp sharp strokes to a more soft one with the white area?

I love this painting, but the title should read RUNNING, not RUNING. Don't you hate typos?

This is so beautiful, so many different colors yet perfectly harmonized to create just the right effect. :aww: I wish I could learn how to paint like this. How big is it? I want one!

I hope to one day oil paint and understand color as much as you do. ;; this is nice, it's cooler than a lot of your vivid redder, warmer pictures ;u; I really like it though, because it has those little warm spots in such nice places. <3 the woman is gorgeous and I love the shading in her dress and the colors you chose, particularly on her bottom (not trying to sound perverted! It's just a typically nice area! ;u;)

I am in absolute love with this piece. I've come back two days in a row to view it. The lighting is so striking, and the colors so vivid. It reminds me of a modern day stained glass painting. Well done. I'm not an oil painter; I work mostly with acrylics so I don't have much expertise to criticize in your specific medium.

This is beautiful -- I especially love the way you created the reflection on the ground.

If there is anything to critique about this piece:
1) Her hips. They seem a bit too "round" (for a lack of better words). It looks as though you may have painted the left side a little too far out (where you've painted it blue). This wouldn't be so bad, but because you also painted in a shadow under her bum/where the dress folds in, it makes her bottom half look a little off to me.

2) I'm not sure, but there is something that looks a little bit off with her forearms. I think they just need to be better defined...especially since she's the focus of the painting!

All in all, I think you did a wonderful job. Again, the colours are just beautiful.

Cheers!

Incredible. I love how you've managed to create such a breathtaking environment with such simple brush (well, knife) strokes just through the use of such bold colors. I also love the composition itself, it's so joyous and free!

This is incredible. I just started learning to paint. This really inspires me now. All the hundreds of colors on the canvas and each one stands so distinctly and yet works together as a whole to produce such a beautiful scene. Not to sound cheesy or anything, but this artist's work makes me really happy to look at.
