Francisco, could it be possible to make the image larger?
Very nice paintingThe peaches are beautiful !but... maybe it is just me but it seems that peaches are slightly suspended and not grounded enough to be on the same plane with the grapes.And I am not sure about the background either : it looks kind of too busy to me do you think you can add some translucency to grapes?But then , maybe it is just me

Now we can see better!All in all it is a beautiful painting...

The peaches are grounded all right . The chestnut is real cute

I would personally prefer a touch of translusency on the grapes though...

Looking forward to see your next work

Lovely work, both this painting and the Olivo.

Your paintings have a charming Old World quality that I admire.
Love,
Linda

This is great and I can prove it

I took a copy of your painting into Paint Shop and greyscaled it.
I am new to painting and only wish I could paint something like this. The books say that a true test of a painting being good is that when seen in black and why the painting still pops... still takes your breath, because you can see everything... the balance, the tones... it all works...
and that is how it is with your painting. It is just as beautiful in black and what as it is in color.

My spelling... sorry

I am having a real problem typing today... I guess I need to go do laundry or something.

"black and why" should read "black and white".

"black and what" should read "black and white".
