Pundits by CheBertrand Pundits by CheBertrand
Each of these fellas are footballers (soccer players) or managers watching the game. I used the sports pages for reference for each face. I'm not much of a fan of the game itself but appreciate the passion of those who are, which is what this is about.

THis is a terrific painting -  good, strong composition, especially with the focal point going to the upper left hand with the more 'finished" portrait. The eye circles the upper tiers and ends with the wonderful portrait of the man with his mouth open. There, the edge of the canvas stop the eye flat and there we remain for a while, absorbed in that face.

Are you familiar with the works by Emil Nolde and the school of German Expressionism? You are certainly following in their footsteps, and grand footsteps they are!
Look at "MASK STILL LIFE lll"

Wow, this really does look like Mask Still Life III. I hadn't seen it before, at least not so I could say that I consciously recognised it. Emil Nolde seems to be right up my street, art-wise, so thanks for the info. Thanks also for the in-depth critique. This is one of the reasons I'm on DA, to gauge other's perceptions of what I'm doing,,, to see if they see what I do in the work, and from the sound of it some people do - which is encouraging.

Yes. Emil Nolde immediately came to my mind when looking at your piece. DevArt is a good place to get your feet wet! Many people on it are untrained in thinking about art - don't have the benefit of having studied art history, so the crits fall a bit short on that end. I'm trying to encourage more of that kind of thing by offering it up myself, and showing people HOW it can be done.

Yes, I agree. There's sometimes a lack of investigation into where past masters have been and excelled here so it's nice to be steered in their direction and to learn about new from a fellow artist.
