by the yellow water by thelunacy-fringe by the yellow water by thelunacy-fringe
This is my second painting for my art class at school. The assignment was to take a photo and reproduce it with only one set of complementary colours (red and green, blue and orange, or purple and yellow). I close purple and yellow, as you can see. In case you can't tell, the yellow is water, the purple is sand (below) and sky (above).

Overall, I am not really happy with this. I like how the cat turned out (except the face) but the background is very unpleasing. :c I've been working on JUST the background this whole week in class. Finally the assistant in my classroom had to pretty much advice me to stop before it turned out even worse. He liked it but I still don't. Ah well, first oil painting.

I hope you guys like it! Feedback and comments are appreciated. :)

Again, my camera totally KILLED the quality of this painting. D:

Materials: Done with oil paint on 16 by 20 canvas.

I love this! You are great at painting! How do you use oil paint? Does oil paint drip like water paint?

Thank you. Yes it is oil, and no oil is very thick like a paste. ^^

When I saw this painting, I was like :O. I love this painting. You did such a good job. You mentioned the face in the description. I personally think it's near perfect. This is a beautiful painting. In my opinion, it deserved the 588 favorites.

cool! I really like this!! what you were saying about the face... personally I don't think the face is off at all, I think that the reason it looks off is because of how far out the neck sticks. and also maybe the front legs shouldn't go as far up and the paws could be a little smaller. But I really like the backround on this! I love the way the land casually turns into the river and the shading on the kitty is magnificent!! sorry if it feels like im giving you a critique but this picture is very inspiering and I wanted to give you some sort of longer comment. :D
