I appologise if this is in the wrong place to post this or not quite concept art. Its my A level (UK) school art project. The teachers have given me suggestions for improvments and I have my own ideas. I'd really apprieciate any comments / crits or suggestions. Sorry about the poor quality but I don't think I was likely to find a fitting scanner!
I'll try and explain the parts that arnt clear
The project title was "The Spirit of the Natural Enviroment" and I looked at Casper David Friedrich as an artist for inspiration, as well as John Howe and
The idea of the foreground is that its a tree that has overgrown a derelict watchtower on a cliffside. The wall still needs alot of painting, and the tree is mainly in the highlight colours. I'd also like to show the bottom half of the tree in shadow, I really want to get across the sunlight streaming from the right side.
Again I want to show this by painting highlights on the cliffs on the right.
Below the foreground cliff is a river, no idea how i'm going to paint that yet.
And the trees really have just had the general masses rushed in, they need better colouring.
I'm aware alot doesn't look correct, the top of the tree for example, but i'm stuck for ideas to solve this. It just occured to me that I could cut them off, perhaps all the corners of the painting in a rounded way to follow the shape of the composition.
Thanks for looking!
