My 1st Canvas Painting!!


Hey folks!

This is my first canvas painting which I did yesterday. I know the girl looks sort of like a witch and the cherry blossom could be a lot better (I hope it does look like a cherry blossom). Obviously, there are many more aspects in which this painting can be improved. So please let me know about what you thought of this painting. Do send me some feedback so that I can improve. I certainly enjoyed painting this! Painting isn’t one of the things I’m proud of but this, I really liked this. Hope you liked it as much as I did!

    How nice, sitting under a seasonal cherry blossom a child wishes upon a shooting star… when to stand up and act on that wish is another story perhaps.. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

    1. That’s a beautiful way to sum it up, Uzma! True. In the end, you need to stand up and act on the wish rather than fantasizing, right? Thank you for passing by and sharing your thoughts with me!!

    Amazing painting! ❀ Love the stark contrast between the clifftop silhouettes and the rising moon, the white swirls really convey the foaming waves plus such vibrant colours of deep blue night sky with the dappled red cherry blossom. Can't wait for more! πŸ˜€

    1. Wow! Your words make my painting seem like a totally new world filled with different notions of art! To be honest, I am sure I couldn’t describe it that well. And you know what? Reading this, I feel so poetic that I’m gonna start working on a poem to fit with this canvas. You truly are an inspirational poet, Tom! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

    Well… For a first, this isn’t bad at all! Painting has never been my forte (although ironically sketching was), so I admire anyone who can make the magic happen.

    It does give you the feel of a fairytale, although you could have avoided painting the smaller cliff below the girl. And maybe reflected the moon on the sea…

    Keep it up! Looking forward to even better stuff! 😊✌️

    1. I prefer sketching over painting, too! I wish I’d avoided that lower part but I’d dropped some black paint or something so I had to cover it up…And yes, the moon’s reflection would have been a good idea. Thank you for passing by! Also, I did make the changes in the previous part of The Truth as you had suggested.☺

    I really like the overall picture – a shooting star (a wish coming true). The cherry blossom is nice.
    She does look a bit like a witch with the pointy shoes, and the hair (hat), but you already knew that. Also, like someone mentioned, the space underneath her should be just water, but I understand that you were covering up a mistake.
    It;s really nice, though. I like the colors quite a bit.

    I don’t mind witch. And I imagine the cherry would look less witchy any other way. πŸ™‚

  6. The truth is in the eye of the beholder. The real masterpieces of art are not valuable because we, the observers, know what are they representing, it’s in what they are not. So, the more opinions people have about one art work, the better it is. It’s easy to explain the meaning of an average landscape painting, but how can you explain the meaning of a black dot on the white canvas? The art is all about the mystery behind the work, not just its beauty…

      Wow! That’s an amazing description of what art is. And I agree that the more ways in which people see an art work, the better it is. It’s almost like a poem; there are numerous ways to decode a poem.

      1. That’s right!
        As I wrote once:
        “The fruits of science are the food for the body.
        The fruits of art are the food for the soul.”…
