I notice that paintings with neutral colors always get chosen. For example, a portrait with basic, real life colors. I would rather use neutral and colorful colors to show more emotion and create an overall aura over the painting. That's more my style but I'm scared to do that because it seems like those ones never get chosen.
My art teacher doesn’t like the way I express my self on my art work ... and I feel really bad because she makes me feel like I’m not good enough ... and I’ve loved art since a child and For competition id like to make her see the art drawing isn’t about how good it is but the meaning behind it .... but I also have trouble with that because even then she’s judging every other day
What a great video! Thanks so much. I recently entered, for the first time to an amateur competition in the town I live in. I entered four paintings. Three oil paintings and one in pastels. To my surprise, I got three blue ribbons and one green. The blue ribbons means I’m qualified to to enter a competition at state level in the fall. I was shocked and happy. The judge gave us all her thoughts about each piece and I was happy about it! I’m a self taught artist and fear to expose myself was my first no-no to enter competitions until i decided to do it this time. I truly appreciate your video! Very encouraging and helpful. I will watch it again and again to make sure I do understand your tips. You are amazing and I love your videos. Best wishes and many blessings.
You know, the way I see it.... van Gogh in all his life time only sold one piece and was to cover a debt.... Today you will pay millions for any van Gogh original.... In the other hand Monet was famous in his life time... So, it's a matter of life - ups and down!!!! Art is an expression of the soul, and there is no bad art.... only people who likes or not what they see; "beauty is on the eye of the beholder". I do art for me and to express the Creator's giving gift of my Soul, and I really don't care if someone else like it or not... I have just express what my Soul wants.
Just the sort of fine art wisdom and experience I had hoped to see from you. Fine art approaches are pretty new to me having spent my career solely in commercial art. These tips make so much sense. Awesome to hear the point of view of an actual judge. And... it would have been worth the viewing regardless, just to watch you doodle. Fun!
