PORTFOLIO CRITIQUES BY C. MICHAEL DUDASH

 

I am now offering portfolio critiques to those who wish to submit samples of their work to me.  Here is what an artist who took advantage of the critique wrote:

"Michael,
I wanted to thank you for your excellent critique. The specific critiques of individual paintings were very
helpful. The discussions of color choices, value and design were detailed and beneficial. What I found
most helpful though was the conversation regarding the bigger picture...what I wanted to say with my paintings, how to stay true to the concept and developing my style.  Thank you again for your kindness
and generosity with the critique.
Connie"

 The samples of your work can be submitted via:

1. uploads to this website

2. by sending slides, prints or digital files on a CD to my studio

3. your own website (this is the best format if you have one) 

I will happily look at your artwork (fine art or illustrations) and will get back to you (via email, or a written letter via the USPS) with comments that will cover at a minimum the following subjects:

Design, use of color and value, edges, draftsmanship, brushwork/palette knife use, and overall look and feel of the work. I will also offer some suggestions to you that should be helpful in working toward achieving your goals as an artist.

 Understand that to a degree, critiques are very subjective. I believe that beyond some simple rules that apply to all representational paintings and drawings, each individual piece of art (or a collective body of work) must be looked at within an appropriate context taking into consideration several factors. The accompanying Portfolio Critique Form will supply me with the information I feel I need to give you a critique that is not only personal in nature, but useful to you as you pursue excellence in your work.

You can send me as many as 20 images (I would suggest a minimum of 5).
