Hello,

I started oil painting in january of 2015. To this day i'm still painting, and love every minute of it.

I have submitted 4 of my paintings for you to pass comments on, and offer me some feedback. I haven't taken any lessons, mainly because i couldn't afford to buy my supplies, and pay somebody. After watching many videos and reading many books, here is where i've gotten to so far (attached pictures).

please let me know what you think

Regards
Derek Mason

Hi Derek! The works are phenomenal! That first one is simply wonderful. The power and drama that the painting exudes is something few can achieve. You have done well in that piece.

The others are good, but not something that appeals to my personal tastes. Having said that, they do show a good control of the medium. They remind me of some of the new work coming out of digitally edited photos or folks that are now painting using the computer rather than real oil paint.

If these are actual oil paintings then bravo!

If these are digital, they are good pieces but need to be identified as such.

Best wishes in your future paintings!

Dear Delmus,

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me some feedback on my work.
I really appreciate it.

Yes, they are all actual Oil Paintings. I do not do digital artwork.

Thank you again, and in case you're interested, here is my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/derekmason.art/

Would you mind if I posted your feedback on my page? Of course, I'd link the comment back to your website.

Regards,
Derek Mason

You are very welcome Derek. Nice FB page. It's good to see it. I wonder why so many artists don't establish a FB page. It's like a mini website and with folks liking your page, it becomes more and more popular. Good work there!
Best wishes,
Delmus
