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.

Re: Orange, lace and ribbon

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!

Re: Orange, lace and ribbon

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?

Re: Orange, lace and ribbon

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.

Re: Orange, lace and ribbon

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
