You really do have some beautiful painting in this but you need to check the ellipses of the base and body of the jug, and make sure there's enough 'physical' space to allow the fruits next to each other and the urn/jug.

I love this. The grapes are very real lookin. Even the ellipses don't bother me as the slight distortion gives the jug a kind of interesting stylized look. Great reflections on the table too.

Very nicely done. You've tackled a tough one here and done a good job. Those grapes are perfect. The silver is great. The ellipse doesn't bother me either - for all I know it's old and slightly askew from use 😉

The painting is very well done. As others have said, the grapes look delicious and the silver is excellent.

My only critique is that the jug looks a little out of perspective. It seems the view is eye level, but it appears that the viewer is looking slightly down on the top of the jug. This may just be me not seeing it quite right.

But as I said, it is very well done.

Rakhi - for what it's worth, I wouldn't alter anything here, just remember to look more closely in the next one!:)
Your painting is so good, it deserves to be the best you can possibly make it :)

Perspective/proportion/making it all 'agree' is worth it for your kind of painting, realism, and high realism at that. :)

beautiful..yes, I noticed that there wasn't enough space between round objects ...like another dimension..but it didn't bother me...pleasing composition

Rakhi. This is a super still life. Excellent work on the silver. It really shines. The fruit colours are great and all look nice and juicy. You are just getting better and better.
