Seriously, Kagan, think of yerself as being in...mid-career...there's plenty of time for you to become a competent colorist!

there you go again...putting yer reds in front of yer blues..and the lamp, I don't care about the lamp, i want more of what's dead center!
Looking back 30 years i see how long i rassled with the problem of foreground and background resolution. I will upload a couple of pieces to my portfolio to illustrate. I have looked at your portfolio long and hard, and let me presume to say you are closer than ever to becoming the painter you want to be! This piece, very recent, is very engaging, challenging,,but painful, i grind my teeth, it comes up short...why?i want more! I need to see what it would be, breaking through all the way to the edges! Opened right up, smashing thru!

Thanks for your interest in my work and dilemma Arnold, I'm in fairly total agreement with what you've said, except for your grinding of the teeth and hatred for the lamp (very subjective, I love the lamp, it resolved the whole painting for me.) Also I happen to think that some conflict is beneficial to the sustainability of visual interest. Still I'm as interested as yourself in seeing where my quest might take me and look forward to viewing your latest uploads for inspiration. Just one other question, I guess I just wasn't properly educated as a colourist but is there really a rule against putting reds before blues?
