Ahoy mr. Solon, thanksfor the dtailed crit. Can I reflect on your crits?
FIrst about the hair , hmm I never thoght of using other color than black fot the hair, thanks for the pointers.If felt the same thing about the closed shapes but I guess application was much harder.The eye part was a stupifity on my part, I did notce it when I was drawing but forgot about it .aboutthe shadow beneath the nose , it was againg more water in the brush hte the colors just spread, and I panicked , kinda. SOrry about the hard edges umm, will try harder next time. really loved your approach to the portratit learned a lot more just now. and about the AR rahman , like Anid said he is a musician and damn good at that.I mean hes not one those musicians who is associtaed to masala Indian movies. Hes stuff is quite contempary. The music is very modern, Btu I think hsi major achievement was the recomposing a national anthem"vande matram" heres the link for youtube(http://youtube.com/watch?v=BJ399KOoNRA) that was written during our freedom struggle. Really touching song. listen to his stuff at his site, umm its in hindi. and this song too http://youtube.com/watch?v=Sp6wUe9gMrw
HMm , I also want to reflect on the kinda rude and the reply to it.
I think the crit was in bad taste. first of all , the issue of copying heres my thought after we always the sum of all our influences so copying does take place consciously or unintentionally. Still i cannot see much likeness in solons and charles Reids work. /But i think the main hurting point was the use of "Pity" .I dont want anybody to pity me , and I think noone who has selfrespect would want that too. Now dont think I am trying to asskiss solon, but chriss didnt really ntocie all teh different style that solon has attempted , for example the art noveau style.and solons approach to portraiture is very versatle. he uses techniques and he also does direct painting. I have written a lot I guess, I am gonna go back and paint. Thanks for the tutoring Mr. Solon.
