Maryna, you are really starting to fly now  :heeha: :yippee: :yippee:

The only suggestion I have is the shape of the oval - the right hand side is a little flatter at the back than the left hand side. Other than that, it's just as good as mine  :congrats: :not_worthy:

It looks really good Maryna - your peppercorns have nice colour. Would there be a tiny bit more colour reflection? I'm not sure without a reference.

I tried the fabric folds and the white on white together and added oranges and leaves for colour. I will try for a better composition on my next go. I want to try white fabric again. Nolan I bought and am trying Golden open acrylics and painting on fine canvas that comes in a pad. For some reason the paint keeps lifting right off the canvas especially if I add any water at all. Blending is very hard - if I am not very careful when i push the paint it lifts. I can repaint patches again when the paint is dry but that's not very satisfactory. Should i put an extra gesso layer on or try painting on a different surface or what?

great job Maryna :clap: what is bothering you about the bowl is the shadow - darken it in the area closest to the bowl  - that will settle the bowl more. Other than that it is a great painting :clap:

Absolutely excellent job Karen  :heeha: I really love your oranges :clap:

I suggest adding a layer of gesso to your canvas, it sounds as though it's too smooth so the paint has no tooth to grip onto. Try it and let's see if that solves the problem
