Did Levitan study looking for critiqe.
It's my first landscape study. Don't realy know what to concentrate on so just trying to get the colours and shapes right. Whould like to have a feedback of someone who has done studies before. Painting of a genius russian painter Levitan:"Evening call".
You've done a great job! I like how you did all the green-yellow hues, a lot bolder than I can manage. Looks like that the aspect ratio of these two images are not quite the same? yours appears to be a bit stretched vertically? also notice the river bank and the path down below, the shape isn't quite there. To me I feel the feeling of "brighter light" is not as much in your study, maybe it's lack of the hue shift towards a bit yellow, especially in the water and the sky line where the atmosphere could scatter light and a lot of times it will shift a bit.
I've done many studies before. What exactly are you studying from the original? Even if it's multiple things it's best to define something. The purpose is not to copy or reproduce accurately but to try and get into the head of Levitan. Let me know and I'll help from there. Thanks for posting.
