Re: Black & Blue

I think you've done an excellent job with the folds in the fabric. I like the areas of light and shadow as well. Well done.

Re: Black & Blue

The light and darks in the folds of the fabric are great and the glass is extraordinary!

Re: Black & Blue

This one looks like it was fun to do. You really handled both the fabric and the blue vase very well. Good job!
