Don Sherrill – Abstract Field

Critique Submitted: October 15th 02:44AM

Hi Marle,

The first photo is a copy of my rendition of the Abstract Field exercise.done on 9″ x 9″ white Pastel Premier paper.

The second is a copy of my rendition a cropped version of one of your referenace photos. it is 9″ x 9″ done on brown Pastelmat. I have attached a copy of the reterence photo.

I like the feel the the Pastelmat paper versus the medium grit surface of the Pastel Premier paper.

    Hi Marla,

    Thanks for your critique on my latest submission. I have updated my initial photo with one where I’ve tried to suggest more atmospheric separation in the vistas. I’ve added some lighter grays to mute the values of the marks in the receding views. Is it too much? Did I over do it? What other suggestions do you have?

    Please count this second critique as a replacement for the missing photo of the “Abstract
    Field” exercise.

    Thanks for your help. It is very much appreciated.
