I think the white specks look like white specs... not light sparkels... I don't know... the background? The blue streaks in the strawberries... especially rear ones. It seems messy to me (messy, not painterly)

white specks aren't all white...read well

only nit is leaf on right side might use some shading

Succulent!!!!!!!!! was my first thought. Look fantastic to me!!
Blue looks great, only thing that might?????!!!!! add something is a bit darker behind the berries.

While overall I think it is good, especially in the stem ends, I agree with you about the white spots.
Those of the berry in the lower right read correctly but then deviate to scattering in the top part of the same berry; I especially like the bit of shadow as correct.
I think the white spots are are more abstract in placement, rather than following the contour of the berry and thus believeable.
It looks as I would paint them--just slap them in and just get it done.

Everything about it works very beautifully.
The colors are magnificent.

I love the purple tones!!!

I really like this! I know that sometimes you can see things in person that you can't see in the scan, or vice versa, but really,this is an excellent painting.

I think they look luscious. I think a little more purple shadow under center berries would add some more drama!

yummy! I love your semi-abstract view of them.

Karen, I agree with Fookie... they almost look like they're sitting on top of the berry...
