Nice work Audrey.
I'd liked to have seen a hint of red in the reflections on the jug.

This is gorgeous but I also think it needs some red in the reflections. :wave:

My only comment other then the reflections, would be that the scale of the pitcher and the cherries seems off. The cherries would be the size of apples in the same ratio I think. I think I would like to see a more intense shadow inside the pitcher also. But that would be my personal taste. Other then that its well done.

I am posting the ref. image which is from Pointing in the IRL here.
This had been painted a few times and posted, hence the title.
As you can see the the scale is not that far off. I guess that one assumes the jug is larger than it is.

Anita thank you. I will look at adding more red to the jug.

Good work...thank you for adding the reference photo. A creme pitcher?

Maybe you should add a little of that light brown to the reflection in the pitcher (see? in the upper right hand corner?) , rather than red (which isnt in the ref).

You know what Jabber, I just did. I had a frame with a little gold on it and to warm up the pic and make it work with the frame, I did add the gold highlight. I also added more red to the jug.
I will post an update pic later. Got to get the light right first and the sun is comming!!!

Very nice. I tried this same picture in digital and it was so much fun...then, hubby said, you really do good apples :(

The pitcher must be a cream pitcher and you did it very well. Great reflections...
