Expecting winter by alltelleringet Expecting winter by alltelleringet
It's not the first time I play with fabric to make it look like snow (check out SNOW COVER), but I wanted to try to realize this idea. Playing with the contrasts between different seasons where the cold winter meets the warm colors of fall. I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

Lets see where to begin...

First of all I'm really delighted how you made the sheets look like sheets and not like snow. Sometimes people try a little too hard to blend it out and it comes out either really good or really bad. However, the landscape doesn't seem right to bare the climate for snow but then again, that almost sets the surrealism of the piece. I would think that a saturated sky would've been more perfect then the greying one that you have currently. Oh yeah, nice touch with the birds flying south. I thought that was a quiet little detail that really required the eye to really see what it was viewing. This could also be said with the soft greying of the ground on the encroaching snow. I think the one thing that really catches my eye in an uncomfortable way is how symmetrical this piece is. The snow line is right down the middle giving an equal amount of negative space filled with only a couple trees. I would think if you moved the line even a couple inches forward in the background you would really understand the approach of winter consuming this piece as your eye travels further into the horizon.

This is my first critique, so bear with me.
I thought this is a really good piece. The balance between the warm, dryness of the dry grass fied is a good with the cool white, iciness of the sheet/snow. I loved how you had her sewing the sheets to show the gradual coming of winter. I noticed the grey shading in the grass at the edge of the sheets and thought that was also creative t show the gradual change in season! On the warmer side of the piece, try adding just a tad bit of color show how winter affects nature. That is the only thing I would recommend. Great job nonetheless! I really liked it!
