Strolling The Pier

by Monte
(Florida)

Acrylic, 18x24 on Canvas, painted from imagination, after painting the skyline, pier, and sea, I got stuck not knowing what to do with the foreground, then the fisherman was painted in and a few days after I got the idea to have a family walking the pier, so I added the man, woman, and little girl and one other fiqure in the distance to help the perspective. Overall am pleased with the result but feel it could be better still with time.

Take out the moon and lighten horizon slightly and this is the winner for art deco contset. The fisherman looks as though he lost "The Big One."

Thanks for taking the time to comment, appreciate the input, and yes, I will be re-working the shadows on the railings and trying for a better contrast with the water. Thanks again for the tips.

Your painting has lots of style Monte, I really like it. It reminded me of Jack Vetriano's work.

Fanciful painting
by: Guy

Nice world you've created there. The angler's posture has me wondering what out in the water has his attention, and I puzzled over who the young girl might be waving to. In short, your painting has life, and the little features made me become immersed in it.
I feel the surface of the pier could have a bit more texture, but that's really a nitpick. It's a wonderful painting

Looks Good to me
by: Pop

Hi,

Lovely job! I only wish I could get away with acrylics. I just don't seem to manage the quick drying somehow.

Nit picking from someone that now only paints in watercolour. Where is the shadow for the railing?

Would have been a five star painting apart from that- Sorry!
