Rose in red cup

I've been re-reading "The Last Flowers of Manet."
He knew that he was dying but still had the need to paint, so he made small paintings of flowers in his room.
He could make a masterpiece by painting a rose in a glass.
This is no masterpiece, for sure, but the master was on my mind while I was painting it.

How does it look?

Re: Rose in red cup

fragile, eternal, calm, bit of whispered poetry in the shape of the leaf. is it a glare up right, there is a darker area there? it's beautiful.
this is really! stretching but should the highlight have a counter element on table? the table does look matte, but a faintest brush of yellow maybe to reflect the reflection.
it's probably just me and all it needs is a signature and a frame!

Re: Rose in red cup

It's a beauty but there's one element that looks odd. The shadow under the leaf ends right where the vertical light is. I immediately saw a cup with a fold in it!

Really nice. The overall pink tone with the single green accent is a haiku.

Re: Rose in red cup

It looks fantastic! Really nice use of color, everything looks really naturalistic and cohesive. What colors are you using in your palette?
