The crit went well last night and I got the list of things to change on the paintings. As usual they are all relatively small fixes. Like on the Amsterdam piece they felt the grocery barge was just a little too dark, so a simply stroke of blue over the top pushed it back more into the distance. The smoke coming from the boat on the left side gave the painting a little too much of an industrial feeling, so I painted that out also. All in all there was about five things to work on and then it was time to move on to the next painting.

The Grocery Barge in Amsterdam 30x40
Boats at the Lake 24x36

With the row boats it was some more work on the grasses and water, all very small changes. I sent off images of the pieces this morning to Ron at the May Gallery. He wants to put out an invitation with the paintings for my show coming up on February 24th.
