A Friend for Nemo

Hello PPF friends,

It's been such a busy day that I completely forgot it was even Friday until about an hour ago!  And I painted early this week.  That's probably why.

I just got the fall schedule from my art teacher and found out that she won't be having adult classes any longer.  I can't say that I blame her, since she didn't have enough students to justify the time.  But I will really miss them.

I can still set aside a few hours a week to paint, but it is much harder without that studio time paid for in advance.  And I will miss the opportunity for critique.  Lucky for me, PPF will help with that.  I'm definitely motivated to paint so I have something to post on Friday.  Plus, I love all of the feedback I receive.  Please, don't hesitate to give me honest, constructive criticism.  Especially since I won't have my teacher for feedback.

So, I really need some feedback on this painting.  I started it a few weeks ago and "finished" it on Wednesday.  But, I showed it to a few people and they didn't think it looked done.

But, I do think it now goes well with Nemo.  He doesn't have to be lonely any more.  (If he could swim to the other painting, like they do on Harry Potter!)

Thanks in advance for any comments and happy PPF to y'all.



  1. I really like the bold orange/coral color against the soft ocean colors.

  2. Well I think it looks done and I'm sure that Nemo is thrilled with the company :0)

  3. I like the painting and the composition. Caveat - it doesn't make sense to me that it is so light. Undersea is dark, dark, dark. So I guess I would find a way to give it some depth.

    Speaking as a non-painter who is married to a perfectionist with artistic talent. He was always "fixing" my folk art projects.

  4. Oh my gosh.. it looks wonderful and done to me. I can see the little fish in the background too. It could be in a fish tank and then it would be light. :) Happy PPF.

  5. That's a wonderful painting full of movement! Seriously though the only person who needs to like the painting is you!! Your work is so lovely, enjoy the process, let go of what others think!! If you say it's done, it's done!!!

    Hugs Giggles
    p.s Please schedule time for yourself so you have no regrets!!

  6. I love the colours, all of them, fabulous art!

  7. Love the blue-grays in the you made a mark and left it! Your process is great!
    And you're right...Paint Party Fridays are wonderful motivation! :)
    Happy PPF!!

  8. I agree that you have to feel "done" although it's good to get input from others. I love the paintings - they are terrific

  9. I don't know enough about art, being self taught and uneducated in this field,to critique you, I can just say I know what I like and I like what you did here. It is pleasing to my eye.

    HPPF on Sunday.

  10. So cute this oceane scenes. Saludos

  11. I think it's looks bright and beautiful, and like the kind of thing I always want to see when I go snorkeling.

  12. I like it the way it is. Thanks for sharing.


Your comments brighten my day. Thanks.
