Your Still Life is very real, but the shadow under the things is not very clear. It's my opinion but may be it's wrong.

Welcome to wetcanvas first of all.
I have a lot of trouble with that shadow and though it does show up better on the original ( the photo is a little dark) I still dont really like it. The brass colour was really good to attempt and is Cad Yellow light or medium into Burnt Umber with Cad yellow light and white for the lightest lights and cad yellow light burnt umber a little Ivory black and Thalo Blue for the shadowy brass.The shadow is just burnt umber. Hope to see your posts soon.Paint like a Millionaire.

Wonderful! I am running out of words tonight but really like the piece you have created.
