still life in acrylics
This is a still life done in acrylics which was done in class. Tried to emphasize the light coming from the right side.

Nice work! I like the green background, the folds and shadows and the variety of different objects from ceramic to pottery, porcelein, and glass. Lights are good tool. .

I like everything except the wine glass. I'd be tempted to piant it out.

Looks good except the glass. You have given a sort of outline to the glass which will not how it will be if u observe the object in real life or in the photo. You need to paint exactly what you see, the forms of the reflections etc and the glass will finally emerge out of it. Maybe do it again.:)

Lovely!. I have to agree somewhat re the glass. Adding some darks to the glass can help. And yes, glass will cast a bit of a shadow.
I do especially like the tall jug.
One question though, did you paint the background last? I know that seems to be a popular technique but all too often one can see some light spots around objects and at times it can be noticed that the strokes have slowed down as they reach the subjects.
