Orange, lace and ribbon
 
I have just completed this picture from an Ann Kullberg lesson using Prismas on white Stonehenge paper. All comments most welcome.

Nice job overall! My main nit is that the orange's left side doesn't seem to rise above the lace. Maybe a sharper line between the orange and the shadow would help? That little naval is really nice though!

you are really brave to do lace. I did once and i will never do it again, so hard to make it look right. You did a god job on it really. I like the lighter part on the orange best, it does really look like the rough surface of an orange. Any chance to see a real close up of this part?

Oh, yeah, that's definitely better. So what's next on the drawing board?

in Post#5 not only can i see the lumps on the orange's skin but i think i can see the weave in the fabric of the doily beneath as well.

Thank you all for looking again :) I think it looks a bit better with the deepened shadow...

Sorry, it's late and I must be having a brainstorm:

Is this a good thing or something that I should try to correct?

Thank you all,
Kiki :D
