Lots of lovely reds. Fun reflections. Apple is delicious. Your elipse is too pointy, especially on the right.

Re: Apple with ceramic bowl

Beautiful work! The eclipse comment is valid at least for me. The reflections are a bit strong - too pronounced for me. The surface of the bowl looks to be a bit rough, i.e. Not smooth so I think the reflected image would be more broken up. And I wonder if the reflected image would read better if it was distorted a bit by horizontally lengthening it. The bowl is curved in two directions. Seems like the placement of the reflection on the bowl should be more off center.

Hope you don't mind the comments. Lovely painting indeed!

Re: Apple with ceramic bowl

Very elegant and so well painted. Beautiful Palette. Lots of feeling.
What catches my eye is the value of the apple shadow on the right side where the light is brightest, perhaps a little dark?
