Vjah,

Nice work on both the wood and the fabric folds.

You're a fast learner.

 :thankyou:  Bev and Mea.
Not a fast learner but more like Excellent Teachers! All credits go to Dennis and Nolan. Lets Draw class really was my foundation and it was only 4 weeks not years. All the questions answered and I came out not confused! More like excited because I can try to explain, to myself. ;D  After the course, it made me see things differently and more curious  :nosey: why it looks like that. Then flashbacks to what they explained. So I get more information as I get my eye to 'see'. Then add the color mixing class and Voila! Of course, you have to put time for practice. Like, I did the color wheel Dennis taught and practice color mixings. I tried to get all shades of a color  ;D (OCD).
And here we are  :painting: .
 :thankyou:  Dennis and Nolan!

your wood effect is immaculate Vjah :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I wonder if the jelly beans won't stand up off the wood even more if you darken the shadows they cast on the wood even more? Especially the green and to a lesser degree the orange ones

Vjah, this is fantastic. Wood looks so real. I so agree if you will darken your shadow unde the jelly beans they will really stand out.  :clap: :clap:

Wow Vjah you really accomplished some great realism there.  Wood grain is not all that easy!
