art room by Reluin art room by Reluin
Observation of the art room at school, watercolor +a little PS.

I'd really, really appreciate any critiques! I have a lot of trouble with figures/traditional so any help would be very useful to me!

Been trying lately to get some more varied work into my portfolio. Most work like this I'll post at my studies/sketch tumblr since it might be less interesting to some people!

I have been on Deviant art for quite a while now and I have not seen a piece like this.
The numerous items you have been able to add to tit without it appearing over crowded is simply astonishing.
The fact that you have been able to grasp all of the elements of an art room and make a piece as refined as this is amazing however It does lack detail in a certain way.
For example it could be improved by implementing more shadows.
The majority of shadow used appears to be only on the students and also in the shelves although the amount that was used added an amazing effect to it a higher level should be used if the piece were to be remade.
overall it is a very original piece and the technique you showed was simply delightful however i do recommend that you try to add more detail.
What do you think?

Love the detail! Like Maliqueg said maybe putting more shadows will help,yet I wouldn't over do it! Despite this love the color scheme nothing too extreme popping out ,but maybe just a few shadows in certain places would spice it up? Also the painting has a lot of energy in it with the artists working and some of the facial expressions really shows concentration in what they are doing.Anyway great painting and look forward to see more of your work! I'm trying to decide if to jump into watercolors or not as in class we started with ink washes that behave just like watercolors and I absolutely love the ink washes , yet love to do one in like watercolors. In your opinion should I attempt watercolors and what would be a good place to buy a like beginner set at? Anyway love the piece again and keep at it.
