I painted this alla prima in about 4 hours. I'd appreciate comments and critiques.

It's in oil on 16x12in, 40x30cm canvas.

The brush work is great,the shadow i feel needs to have soft edges so it can blend into the surface, as shadows would having ,hard edges it make it separate to the table surface.

I like the vigorous handling of the paint very much.
Yes, I'd soften the shadow as it moves away from the bouquet but I'd also add a little more intense and defined shadow and shape where it lies on the table - just to ground the flowers a bit.
