hey! WOW that's a big jump. Well the only thing I can think of is just the editing of the table edge, make it maybe a bit smoother? I wouldn't add anything, a candle of some sort would be interesting!

Thanks Digital Portraits and Bev! :wave:
I went with the candle or burned out one as it came out...fixed the handle on the urn it was way out of perspective as related to the spout on the jar LOL I was thinking round when I originally put it together then decided along the way it needed a spout ....... hence the mess up! LOL

Great Lady A but i think the holder could be green or something, all the same colour is a bit much maybe, just a thought:cat:

The objects feel rather isolated from each other. Let them overlap some, next time. Makes things cozy ;)
I do like your pottery feeling. It's very warm.

Beau....ti....ful!.....:clap: :clap: Perhaps you could add a little lace or an open old dusty book to give it a romantic feeling? -:)

Lovely work Marge. As a composition it lacks a bit of unity, overlap them or add something to join them. I see the candle is out: run out of wine?

Thank you All and the composition thing is noted JA and Barry...;o) I am working on it...(I slapped myself after reading it because I knew better think I got caught up in painting the different pieces without thinking of the overall look)

Now there we have a composition Marge :clap: :clap:
Superb, And I love the blue baubles, they connect with the blues on the jug.
I know what you mean though, you think so hard about one thing you forget about another, My wife often walks in and immediately spots an obvious error
Lovely.

thats a nice set up u have there ladyalba...good work..if i may suggest some minor thing: just take care of the table a bit, its perspective is a bit off. just try to fix it and see. only if u agree...:).

i really like the way uve made a nice arrangement...:).

Susan go to the top of the page and over to your left you will see " My WC" in the second blue strip ... click on that and out of the menu on your left in the new window click on Edit Options in the top section of Settings & Options from the new page you can edit how everything is displayed. Hope this helps! ;o)
