Daily Deviation

Given 2011-11-06
Serenade is a quirky piece of surreal work by *davegoldartgallery ( Suggested by PutYourBraveFaceOn and Featured by deshrubber )
:iconparadoxigent:
Oh, is this abstract art that I see? :dummy:

To start off, great use of color. The lightness and the color choices give the artwork this sort of "dreamy-happy-fantasy" if that's a way to put it. There are a few issues on some little things, just little things. While the two people look great, the other objects look a little too faded, especially around the candy cane tree object. You have to be careful when applying an effect and how the affect will change everything. It does though keep the couple in focus, keeping the attention mostly on them. I haven't seen anything else that resembles this, so extra points on originality!

I don't know what it is about these colors that is so attractive. The faded and pale colors make it so dreamy and make me want to be there. I really like this.

This image has caught my attention with its subtle, yet well executed pop surrealist style. The attention to fine detail and smooth transitions within the forms, have made this image unique! Finding traditional paintings on DA has become more and more difficult, so its refreshing to come across your piece. I ask that you please visit my small, but promising pop surrealist blog. Any feedback or sharing from you would be greatly appreciated. [link]

the name fit perfectly... I've never imagined that the pink colour could be so relaxing... no, I guess that is the perfect work that you usually make! all the colours are so softs and the effect is a great work!

I don't really like it, because -in my opinion- it's to similar to the work of Yves Tanguy.
