Did you know that
I do critiques for other artists? I do, and this little jewel is the result of
This study was
done as part of a critique another artist requested for his own painting of the
scene. In this particular case I felt the subject could be handled very
differently than he had painted it.
And thought I
could better explain my suggestions by doing this complete color study as a
guide to demonstrate what I had in mind.
critiques are emailed to artists, an image of this painting was included in the
critique but I retained the original.
And since it
is such a delightful little painting in its own right I’ve decided to offer
this original on eBay. This is painted with genuine oils on paper, which is
mounted on a backing panel so that it’s ready for framing.
I often do critiques for artists all over the

following who come back again and again for more critiques.
involve a detailed analysis of the painting with suggestions for how it can be
taken up a notch and given a more professional look. I usually offer a “digital
paint-over” of changes I recommend, along with clear instructions on how you
can make those changes on your original. I even include instructions about how
you can safely test the changes with no risk of damaging your original until
you’re certain about things.
In some cases I take things further, like
the example shown above.
A critique is $50 per painting, paid in advance via
PayPal. I usually send the analysis within 7 to 10 days. I don’t rush things
because I want to offer a quality analysis.
The critique is delivered as a pdf document
so that you can view it on most any computer or tablet. You can even print out
the pages of the document to study more carefully if you wish.

analysis and critique of your own work

I am certain you will be more than pleased
with what I’m able to show you and what you’re able to do as a result. Let me
know if this interests you. And regardless, I wish you HAPPY PAINTING!
