Hi Katrina, Me and Scott both loved your artwork. You should have more confidence in your ability. I personally think your scenery paintings are some of your best work. Have you ever considered doing matte painting? Its a combination of 3D and 2D, so might be a good fit for you in the future.
If you say you need practice and will be doing more of these, I'm not complaining. Because I certainly won't mind seeing more of this. The background especially, the clouds and sky make this look so dreamy while she looks down (at the cat, I guess) and seems oblivious of what's right there.
Lovely! Though if I were to critique it, I would suggest lightening the mountain in the very middle of the picture, I find it slightly distracting to the main focus of the piece. (Of course, feel free to ignore me, as this is a wonderful painting as is.)
Ahh thanks so much for the suggestion! When it comes to art, I'm usually always mulling over things by myself, so it's really great when someone comes along and points out something I missed or mistakes I didn't notice. You're absolutely right here - I'll definitely make the change later!
