Oil Paintings by New Hampshire seacoast artist Todd Bonita
I love your fruit ... I just want to grab one & take it with me for a snack. The colors are great ... love the pale blue table cloth contrasting with the bright color of the fruit. BEAUTIFUL! :-) Elizabeth
Hi ELizabeth,Thanks so much. you won't believe how close I came to launching this painting across the studio. I battled the whole time...I have so much to learn.
These are lovely....now go outside and paint something.
Hey saw your post on craigs list. I really like your stuff. You use oils very well. I am an artist as well-work alot with photography. check my blog out sometime http:apriljones7.blogspot.com. great work!!
All of your paintings although different in subject communicate the same look, frozen and emotionless, paint from emotion not from the hand and the eye.Patrick
Hi all,I've received a lot of feedback and I'm sincerely gratefull to you for taking the time to look and give your honest opinions. I've learned so much in a short period of time because of you all. My next post is a landscape . I attempted to incorporate some of the feedback that I have received. Thanks, Todd
Hi Todd,I'm an emerging artist myself, I know how helpful critique can be. I believe you oranges are your strongest piece, and I think its largely successful due to the mixture of loose brushstrokes and the tighter realism you explore in your other paintings. As for the other paintings, suggestions I would make:In 'Flurries', consider the sky a bit more. While sky does get darker as it goes up, it doesn't become that dark until 6-7 pm, and the shadows would be different. Also think about using different colors in the sky. Sometimes sky is very cerulean ( as a lot of NE skies are) and sometimes very cobolt, but they also vary in intensity throughout the sky. Don't get married to one color.Your colors in "pear" are just gorgeous. i think the looser brushstroke works for you, though I'm most fond of when you combine your two styles.Hope I helped a little!~Alessandra
I think your oranges are fantastic!! Amazing how realistic they are....truly be proud of your work.
