Moroccan Sky.. comments please!

My latest image. A gift to my son Ethem who is turning 2 on the 16th. He loves horses, and I thought this is cheerful. Comments here or in my portfolio appreciated. Thanks.

Very nice, my only criticism would be that the yellow lines in the sky are a bit too jagged.

I just smoothed over a few lines and added a light subject - apologies if you dont like it!

nice work jenny!

i like the contrast of color and shadow. good motion in the horse too! he will really like it now but its also something when he is older he can look at and appreciate.

Oooooh! I like! With all of those colors it will look nice no matter what colors he uses in his room as he grows older. What a great gift!

It's a really bright picture and I love the colours Jenny, but what dpi have you used? I ask this because it looks as if it is rather small, and I don't just mean this thumbnail version or the larger picture. I'm going by the pixelation in the strokes. :) And how big is your image, because if you print it out you might get a shock. I have printed out pictures that are 1100x700 and 200 dpi and they don't cover an A4 sheet of paper.

To get some of the pictures that are printed out for Epilogue, they use 500 dpi and pictures measuring 4000 in one direction at least.

Ask Sean he will be more precise and in the than me. He will advise you on a decent size for your sons wall.

Hi Mike, thanks for your critique. This is the style I wanted for this particular image and I'm quite happy with the original. I tried to do it thinking what what kind of lines a child would do. Your's turned out good too!

Jenny Gulseren 03 Jan 2005

Thank you Hinsel and Trish!

Hi Steph, your points are very good. I'm not planning to decorate his room with it, but your suggestions are totally valid. My intention was to create something for him with love, and if he wants it print out later on, I can take it to my dad who knows about the printing business. Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it!

Dear Jenny.Trust you are well.I don't really have a problem with your artwork that you made with love and for your son aged two.I do not really think that the visual ability of a child aged two is far enough developed to really appreciate the artwork that you made specially for him.At age two children are more in the stage of discovering new things,the feeling of things,texture etc.In other words you would probably have found that he touches everything in the house,in the shopping mall etc.They develop through what they feel.Soon they grow and their visual ability develop along with their growth.Perhaps a wooden horse,something he can fiddle with or some clay would be a good call. Just a thought,not meant as any critisism though.....but I do agree children prefer bright colours.Kind regards.

I just want to say this is a very beautiful piece of art that I am sure your son will cherish it always

Excellent work. I love the colors and the contrasting black. It is not too busy it pops!

Im eager to view any current drawings you have rendered in the last year. I realise its been a terrible time for artists worldwide, but you are so talented and I believe in you.... never stop being your creative self. Shine on.... ( a deeply devoted fan)

There are moments in our lives when the creation of art is really not the priority. If you don't feel inspiration, just don't do it. Relax, enjoy your life and when the inspiration strikes... paint like crazy! I think both of your beautiful children will have your creative spirit and explore it in their own unique ways.

Its quite obvious to me that your creative energy has occurred in many other venues besides art.
