Shade on Yupo - Revisited (corrected)
I received some great critiques on this one from my buddies at the WcW. They noted that I had ended that tree trunk to the left of the umbrella pole at the umbrella canopy...a big no-no that I would have caught in anyone elses painting, but did I see it in my own painting? No! I also had a few floating table legs that needed to be grounded and while I was at it I added some dappled shadows on the outside of the yellow table leg. I like it better, although I was too blind to see the problems with it before. I hope that no one is afraid of criticism when painting so they don't want critiques, I see them as invaluable tools for artists to help each other and have learned so much by having my paintings critiqued, as well as doing the critiques for others.
