Love the use of the complements. Yellow makes such a great ground color. Hope to see you do more figures. You do them so well, too.

Not accustomed to seeing you do figurative paintings! Love the composition and light/shadows..you should do more like this!

Lovely balance, almost zen like, isn't it?

Hi Karen, what a super painting! I just love the figures, colors and the gesture of the stance on each figure. Great job!!!!

It's so nice to see a people portrait by you Karen, and I can feel the closeness of these two in how you have portrayed them.

Hi Karen,

As I so often do with your work, I sat staring at this. It is such a warm, natural loving painting, And I love the unusual yellow background contrasting so beautifully with the jeans. Plus the gesture is so tender.

Wonderful.

Take care,

Barbara

composition, color and the whole feeling tone is really nice.

So effective, the color contrasts, the quiet background almost like an unknown "future" and the lovely language of the little bodies!

Gwen Bell said...

Love the colors as usual! This composition is so appealing with that long shadow drawing the eye across. Very nice work on the figures.

Interesting colors and a wonderful composition! The placement of the shadow is wonderful. I love how you handled the fabric. That is so hard to do and you did a great job!
