Hi! This is one I did this morning 8"x10". I painted with a friend of mine and she had set up the still life. Any comments and critiques are most appreciated.
Thank you!!
Tracey

Oh I love the loose feel of the flowers and the colors. As far as comments, the flower vase looks like it is hanging off the edge of the table..teeterring on the edge. Perhaps raising the table color to give it a little more room. Also I don't see any shadows under it or near it. You have some nice shadows in the blue vase. The only other comment is I think it would have been a little better composition if you had overlapped the two vases slightly, which is only a suggestion for the future. I think you have done a great job already.

Very loose and painterly for sure. Great color and an interesting angle. Nice.

What a pleasant piece. I LOVE the color and the vibrant, yet soft brush strokes. How do you DO that?! :D

It's lovely. I want to try to be more loose with my paints. I can't imagine finishing an entire painting in a morning.
