Self Taught

Postby yoli » Thu Mar 05, 2015 1:13 pm

Hello everyone,
I am self taught, I would appreciate feedback. I started out doing faces, but now I work mainly with gouache and pastel pencils. I
always like my paintings to have some kind of story. My favorite subject matter is the Amish Plain People, seeing as I come from
Pennsylvania I guess it makes sense. These are a few of my pieces.
Thanks,
Yolanda

I saw the other two and now I get to see the cornfield. The corn falls beautifully
under the blue sky and beside those strong black horses. Keep working on the feel of
people and 'machinery' - you've got everything else just right! Thank You, E

Those are fantastic! Only thing I can point out is the proportions on you tricycle seem a little off, but that might be just me. Other then that it is fantastic!

Thank you for your post!

Hi Yoli. I hope you continue to draw and paint. I think you are showing great aptitude and suspect you have a whole lot to share/give to others.
