  • good enough?

    I am so critical of myself and my artwork when I compare it to others' work.

    Please tell me what you think. Honesty please This is a portrait of my cat "Gina". I just finished it today. It took about 4 hours work.

    Very nice

    It reminds me of some of my late Father's artwork.

    He didn't think he was very good either. I'll have to shoot some digital pics of his paintings one of these days.

    Personally, I'd like to see more examples....

      Seriously....as a former Art teacher, I like it. Personally, I've always envied people that can PAINT....and have the finished piece look so nice. I chose to concentrate on pen and inks and charcoals.

      Again. Nice work. [Wink]

                It's very pretty. I would like a copy with a cobalt blue background.

                  I wouldn't call myself Mr. Art. However, I have been to the Museum of Fine Art in Boston 2 times. I think that it a fine job.

                    If anyone would like thier pet done for free please let me know. FREE, but I can use the photo of the painting in my portfolio. Limit 5 ...first 5 people with the clearest photos.

                    You all letting me paint your dog or cat, or bird, etc. will also help me get started.

                    Think about it then let me know. I'll need a close up photo of your pet, preferibly with a digital camera. Take the photo with the red eye filter on when using the flash indoors, or the best light would be outside NOT in direct sunlight. Any markings should be perfectly clear.

                    Thanks for all your opinions.

                      JKT:

                      Here are 2 more of my pieces. My Dad's cats which I did before Christmas and an old pastel drawing of his dog, that I did back in 1987.

                          Lisa, those look great!!

                          You've picked a none too easy subject to work with. My Father did a lot of painting from photos, but he mostly did landscapes and scenics. I'm by no means an expert, but I do know what I like.

                          And you do have talent.

                          Dad used to keep a sketch pad next to his chair, was constantly sketching football players, TV characters, etc., just to "keep in practice".

                          I will try and get some pics of a few of his paintings this weekend.

                          Keep up the good work.

                            JKT, that'd be neat if you could show us some of your dad's sketches! I'm looking forward to it.

                            I am working on a pencil sketch of my basset hound right now. I want to get your opinions on whether I should do watercolors or pencil. Pencil is looking 10x better! To me, at least

                              I would love it if you did one of my dog. I have a few good digital photos you could choose from. Is the offer still open?
