Here is another flowers and fruit I did today. It's 8" x 10" on illustration board.
Any comments and critiques are appreciated.
Thanks!!

Bright and cheerful and pretty. What's not to like. I'd prefer a little darker shadow at least immediately under the vases and fruit. If not the entire shadow, just a line and a bit fading out to the end of the shadow.

Nice job. Perhaps I would strengthen the body shadow a little on the yellow vase.

i love your style !! ... loose, playful, cheery, and colourful !! .. if you're going to fiddle with it though, the red vase' shadow could be brought to the left a bit ...

Tracey. A charming light hearted and 'full of the joys of summer' painting.
The colours are really good. Good advice from Paula.

Nice colors and a bold confident sense in the brush strokes. It feels sunny and bright to me.

Tracey, this is lovely - a nice cheerful painting :clap: I would suggest having a couple of the apples overlap each other to lessen the space between them.
