I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I also do too much to a painting/drawing just to find out that it would have looked much better before and I remember that less is more. ;) Anyway, welldone.
Incredible rendering !
There's always gouache as a solution!
While I didn't see it before you added the color, I like it very much just the way it is! nancy
It's still good!
I think the background works just fine - the rich color makes it look like late in the evening, exactly the time when these cans would be emptied and forgotten :-) Great drawing! And so is the doughnut below - looks tasty!
What a great painting! I actually really like the painted backdrop, I think it gives some nice depth to the overall picture.
nice work Debra
Hello Debra,We'd love to have this image displayed on www.qingdaonese.com, pls contact me if you'd be so inclined... you can check out some of the Qingdao related art and photos there and see if it's a good fit for you. Thanks, nice work, good job :)Steven
Thanks for your comments everyone, going to try again at some point, probably next time a beer can is left on my balcony. I've tried painting the bottles but never happy with the finished results.Steven, no problem as long as I get a credit. Just visited your interesting site but not sure how to get in touch
Thanks for your comments everyone!
