New Eyes!

Using a quick and clumsy computer program on the jpg image to see if the critical observations were right.

I love the idea that someone can walk into a room and immediately see the problem with a painting that I have been staring at and can’t see. My husband can often do that “extra eyes” for me and that is exactly why I put this painting out here for comment.

BRAVO for two of my viewers for commenting and helping me see what was wrong with the painting.

To test their observation, I quickly pulled the jpg into the software program PAINT and by snipping and copying bits of surrounding image, mocked what the painting would look if I painted out the tall woman on the right. Yes, I agree. THAT was what was bugging me as well.

Thank you for your “New Eyes” — I will head back to the easel this evening to do it with real paint. Onward!

  1. I liked the contrast brought by the woman on the right (her color, headdress, the way she carries her child) but her place behind the elder was distracting. What if she took the place of the other woman?

  2. I think that removing the tall woman does improve the focus and impact of the painting.If you wanted to keep that element, would it work reduced in size and moved “back” and to the right?
