How many times I have seen either online or magazines, you could request for a critic on paintings in Watercolour or other mediums.
Personally, I would only ask from very competent artists. Those who have seriously learnt their trade, have achieved high grades and shown their achievements.
If you are a beginner, a critic can be soul destroying! There is always improvement towards either application of the paint or colours, or perspective, the technical aspect of a creation etc etc...
Most importantly, it is no good to ask from an artist who loves abstract if you are inclined to produce realistic art.
The phrase Art is Objective is so true! No one has the same perception about a painting or the way to create it. Each artist, beginner of well established, create with their Heart and their Soul.
Nobody is allowed to destroy the dreams of an Artist.
Magazines specialising in Watercolour, offering critics, is taking a gamble!
So many artists producing so many watercolours of all styles! How can a critic be passed on all these different works?
My advice to all of you considering a critic of your own work, is search other grand artists works, the ones that you would like to emulate, compare your work and see where you can improve.
And do not forget: Practice makes Perfect
