All are very nice, but my favorite is the second.

I really like the way your style is developing. Very nice brush strokes and the color is so fresh and clean. Very nice in my humble opinion.

I'd also agree that your work is improving :)

All three are very nicely done, your treatment of the fabric is nice around the coffee pot.
Your crysanthamums look wonderful and the eucalyptus was evident before scrolling down (perfect color & shape).

Good job, Bhavani!
(Great excuse to buy myself flowers, too!)

Oh yes, definitely getting better because you learn from your work - I love to see that!:)

Your colour choices are also improving and sometimes they're exquisitely subtle - as in the eucalyptus leaves set against the delightful flower.

I also suspect you know where anything might be 'off' a bit - but I do so enjoy seeing your development ad an artist. :clap: :clap:

PS - don't you find that painting from life brings so much more 'life' to a painting, whatever the subject?

Hi Mum... thank you :). I am always so happy to read your comments :). Yeah after every painting I finish, I find things wrong with it but at this point I am trying to move on to the next one and carry forward the learnings. W.r.t drawing I am hoping, it will get better with practice esp with ellipses and rounded objects. Yes I so agree with your comment on painting from life. It has really changed the way I see things (colors, shapes and values). I think the 30 day painting challenge in Jan got me into this mode of painting often and painting small.. since I paint small I can finish it in 2 hours or so... and since I paint often I remember to carry forward my learnings in the next painting. I am really hoping to paint landscapes from life soon... :)
