You mixed that palette so skillfully. It truly looks like a faded old-time photo. Love it.

Hmm, while it IS a lovely play on red, there seems to be something missing. I can't seem to get a feel for what I should focus on, so I just wonder around the piece. The highest amount of contrast is on the front, where t he tree is, however, there are very few highlights showing. This makes the tree stand out less. Try to get a bit more contrast and highlights going on the area of focus next time.

Great job managing your paint, however, it looks very clean :)

Thank you! Are you a teacher? I don't know, but I didn't want too many highlights, I wanted more a vague thing, lonesome, sad and lonely, you know, and not every painting needs a focal point. I could have painted more highlights on that tree, but that would not express the "atmosphere" I was after. The highest amount of contrast isn't on the front, it is between the sky and the foreground. I made up something more in tune with your words here:

You're welcome! Yes, I can see you have great skills in painting, and are able to express focus and mood quite well. I am not a teacher, so much as I share some things I've learned from the pros haha. 

I do see the blunt loneliness you were after on this piece, although it makes it a bit plain to look at. Perhaps not a change of value, but instead the mood, could have added a bit more to this. There's something great, and bad about monochromatic pieces. It's something I battle with all the time in pencil drawing, since I have to rely on values to show everything. At times, even though I know the values correctly represent the subject matter, the composition is not very interesting at all.

Just a tad bit of anarchy, and you can do great things haha!

Hi, thanks for commenting, I saw your drawings, really wonderful! Congratulations! The "battle" you commented, deserves deep study, it pays rewards to someone's work! :hug:
