Someone introduced himself as quite a "successful" painter. I know nothing about paintings. This is one of his works. Could you tell me if this looks like something?

It looks like PART of a larger piece of work. Please show the entire painting.

@Banana Breath,
Would it be hard to paint something like this, I mean, is there anything special about this painting?

@farmerman,
Sorry I don't know how to adjust color. But here are other samples:

@clare10022,
I like it.

I have old glass in my windows that distort everything a bit. On rainy days things will look sort of like that painting and I love the effect.

I really like that bottom painting of the flowers.

@boomerang,
the artist is indeed accomplished in plein air techniques where a quick impressionistic style says a lot.

@farmerman,
I see. Thanks. The middle one (with lots of yellow and red) is frankly an eye-sore to me but what do I know...

@clare10022,
sometimes artists should just toss their first or second attempts but in the case of your middle onr, its a done as a still life in a sunny room and the impressionist view is done quickly. The artist knew what he or she was doing. Its not amateurish.

How do you know he painted it with his bottom?

@clare10022,
Clare, I'd consider these to be within the "vast middle-ground" of painting. Not terrible, not outstanding. There's nothing wrong with that; if you like a painting in that realm, it's perfectly reasonable to buy it and put it on your wall. I don't consider these to be stylistically unique or important, and there's no reason to think they'd be valuable, but again, if they make you happy, that's what matters.

@Banana Breath,
Id disagree. They are quite accomplished. The last one is a painterly plein aire and is rather advanced in its colors. Youd need a painting background to spot the tricks the artist used in color of the flowers. If you can load it onto ASK art dot com. They have recent values for this artist in auction environments..

The first painting (I think) just has been yellow toned in the computer or camera. Its a typical thing that phone cameras used to do --go to the warm. Old Kodak films would do that also, and folks would use blue filters to knock it down.

@farmerman,
Thank you for informing me on plein air. I looked around and found some paintings that I think used a similar technique. These are all done by the same painter. Between these and the ones above, are there ways to tell which painter is superior?

@clare10022,
I don't think the bottom two are done by the same painter as the two above. The signature on the bottom is nothing like that on any of the paintings you've posted so far.

It looks like the signatures on the top two aren't the same.

@bobsal u1553115,
Hi. They're all by the same Korean painter. He signed his name in English (Oh Chi-ho) on the second picture and in Chinese characters (之湖 - pronounced Chi-ho in Korean) on the last one.

Similar examples. All by the same artist.
