Your pitcher is wonderful, love the colours you have in there to portray the white china.

Your cast shadows are excellent!! Just the right touch..

The fruit are more than believable..

The background is delicious!!

Guess I love this piece then..;)

Be proud it is totally wonderful..

This is gorgeous! I love the fabric, looks like rich silk that you could reach in and touch. Lovely painting

Its great! So bright. I really like the wood that the subjects are resting on, very natural with the texture and shadow. I also like that its a 'shelf', refreshing rather than being a table cloth.

This is one of the best still lifes I have seen in a long time. I also guide the Still Life Forum so I have seen many.

The side lighting is wonderful. A great view too. The composition of the elements is well balanced and believable. Excellent stuff.

Thank you guys. I am pleased with this one considering it only took me 10 minutes to set up the composition and take the photo. I was making the most of the late afternoon sun. Last time I tried to set up a sitll life it took hours and I never got anything worth painting. I decided this time to use the 'K.I.S.S.' effect (Keep It Simple Stupid) Seems to work doncha think?!!

Carol I will post it in the Still Life forum. It might help some with ideas. Thanks for the comments.

Grant, Lyn, Lulu Thanks for looking in. (Lulu you are over the top kiddo. :o )

I posted this in the 'Still Life' forum and got some constructive crit about the bg drapery. I intend to repeat this in a larger format so will work on that to soften it and tone down the stripey effect.
