A few days ago I did an absolutely FANTASTIC painting with oil pastels and turpenoid....it is of a sorrel Arabian mare in a field with pine trees in the back, and there's a gorgeous little palomino foal lying in the grass next to her. It was my first shot at impressionism without my art instructor in the room (she doesn't help me-- she just makes sure I'm not doing anything dumb hehe). It's really pretty....the horses have lots of purples and yellows and oranges and pine greens mixed into them....really a very stunning piece. Took me around 6 hours with distractions to totally finish.
Then my dad came outside to do his "professional" criticism. Yeah, like he's a true art critic or something.
He told me that the mare's tail is swishing over her hindquarters, but it looks like it's GROWING on her. The foal's eye is too wide, the hooves are the wrong shade of pink, they should have less red in them, the pine trees are too dark, BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. I know it's beautiful though....I know I'm really good but my dad is just such a critic!
