Great job Edward!

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

Really, really nice Edward, your figures are perfect. I like the crop in this format too!

Cathyann said...

Thanks for visiting my post on this, Edward...I like your long format...and I loved seeing your full face on yesterday's post with your show pieces...are you going to use that for the the portrait challenge? Or create a new one? BTW, did not get into DC for Sargent yet...too wet and nasty here.
Good job on this one.

Manon Doyle said...

AutumnLeaves said...

Beautifully done, Edward!

FCP said...

Very well done, Edward. I love how the lines in the floor and the lighting lead the eye in and out of the composition. It is a tough perspective but you make it look easy!

Very nice. I love the warm colors, especially the rich gold on the floor. All of your work is so well done. You make it look so easy!

Nice job Edward, love the vertical composition, very effective, and you handled the foreshortening beautifully.

dominique eichi said...

THis is one of the best ! Period !

Gwen Bell said...

Have to concur with Dominique...this really is the best! Love the way you brought out the glowing colors of the skintones and the spot of glowing red on the floor. Perfect shadows and light. Just awesome!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

This is excellent. I really like your choice of colors, and the way you did the highlights on the people. That yellow in the foreground grabs your eye and draws you in and then around the picture.

Carol Horzempa said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Edward! Your DSFDF challenge is great...love your colors and how you handled the figures!

Carol Nelson said...

Great job, Edward. I'm going back and checking the works that I think are special and they're all bigger than the 6x6 format I used. I had trouble getting all that detail into a small size.

Michelle said...

Amazing work...as always! I love the color choices.

Glenda Mosher said...

I always look forward to your interpretations, Edward. This is great! I like how you cropped it.
