"Hi Corri! Glad to see you back on the site..
I think the way you paint snow on trees is pretty good. Your photo is excellent (and if you allow me I keep it for my own reference photos)
What I found strange is that you changed the focal point. I…"
"I too love to see your WIP Phillipe and this one is no exception. You certainly have a lot of courage to take on the difficult street scenes that you do and they always come out spectacular! I can see this is no exception! …"
"Hello Mary! I love the subtile coulors of distant hills, as well as the foreground. The sky is quiet but with a beautiful pale pink. And also, thanks for posting a large picture, so that we can see and admire your artwork (full size)."
"Philippe: This is amazing!!! I can't wait to study it in detail and you are right; I think I'll get most of it because of all your great pictures, regardless of the language.
Thank you so much for sharing it with all of…"

Philippe, i am so totally impressed by all the people in your paintings. i so want to try people, i just dont know where to begin. i guess i am not very brave haha. the more i look at yours, the more i want to try it though. you inspire me :)
Philippe..thank you for your kind words regarding my art work..I;ve been painting for years but I still have a long way to go! Your art is beautiful and I love the thoughts behind each of your paintings! Keep them coming!
Philippe - we are not supposed to critique works posted in the "photo" section, that is why I have hesitated. If you block off the left side of "Explosions" along the diagonal line of the background value shift, you will see a very nice, cheerful painting on the right side. Now block off the right side along the same line. The left side of the painting is quite drab by comparison, with lots of mid values but no light values except a few streaks of white. There is no unity between the two sides of the canvas. I think you need some bold light values on the left side to give it more life and provide a better sense of unity.
