Roses in a vase

My try at a still life using roses. Ac, 15x16. The background was too grey to suite my palette and the addition of brown a bit heavy handed, I think. C+c appreciated.

Lovely roses Christel. Maybe add a smidgeon of shadow on the table?

Re: Roses in a vase

Christel, it is a lovely floral still life. I might suggest a crop closer to the roses and vase as the bg does not add anything to the subject IMHO.

Re: Roses in a vase

I like it very much, especially now the crop has been applied.
Good work.
