Feedback from members:
Barbara Stevens: Nonsuch Palace makes a really good subject.  I think that I would remove the signpost – my eye keeps being drawn to it instead of the palace.
Colin Garrod: I like this as it is – so no need to remove the signpost!
Dave Tribe: Thanks – Sign gone, looks much better

crit_davetribe_Love it or hate it
Artist: Dave Tribe / Title: Love it or hate it / Medium: Oil
Artist’s comments: My latest, and maybe last, in my Corona virus series. It’s called ‘LOVE IT OR HATE IT’ – the same question applies to the painting!

Barbara Stevens: This is lovely – you’ve captured the sunlight and the atmosphere really well.
Colin Garrod: Yes I agree! and it’s a slight departure from your usual accomplished style?
Gina Grimwood: I really like this painting- especially the cast shadows.
Joy Crouch: The subject really suits your style of painting. More please.

Dave Tribe:  I really like your recent ship pictures but I hope they haven’t got Coronavirus on board!
George Foxwell: This is marginally my favourite of your two ship paintings. Both are impressively good but the composition and viewpoint on this one does it for me.

crit_johnlucking_The Cricketers, Stamford Green
Artist: John Lucking / Title: The Cricketers, Stamford Green / Medium: Pen and ink
Artist’s comments: I think this has come out a bit too neat.  If I do it again, I’ll try to scruff it up a bit.
Give feedback
Feedback from members:
Barbara Reilly: Neat is your distinctive style, so do you need to change?
Barbara Stevens: It would be very interesting to see you tackle the same subject in a completely different style!
Colin Garrod: I don’t actually think it looks like The Cricketers! Perhaps it’s partly because it lacks sufficient tonal variation to give it perspective?

crit_richardseymour_Burmese market
Artist: Richard Seymour / Title: Burmese market / Medium: Acrylic
Artist’s comments: Visited on our trip down the Irrawady from Mandalay.
Give feedback
Feedback from members:
Colin Garrod: I like your loose painting style. It always leaves something for the viewer to do – avoids having to put in too much detail and must be a useful time-saving technique!
John Lucking: I agree with Colin. It would tolerate brighter colours without detriment in my opinion, but I know I like brighter colours than most artists, so many may disagree with me.

Crit_RichardSeymour_Magus
Artist: Richard Seymour / Title: Majus / Medium: Acrylic
Artist’s comments: This is were the mind goes if you are incarcerated.
Give feedback
Feedback from members:
Barbara Reilly: I like the atmosphere of doom and the movement. An appropriate subject for today?
Colin Garrod: I didn’t know you could ride a horse! – have you been riding for long?
John Lucking: There is a lot of energy in this picture – I like it – especially the sky and clouds.
Dave Tribe: Very powerful – and hasn’t your beard grown during the lockdown.
George Foxwell: A bit creepy but I like it, Gandalf and the eagles come to mind.
