Your peony has a real brilliance to it.  :cheering: :cheering: Well done! Raisins? Hmmmmm. Not the best look. Good choice to practice them separately. I'm not sure it's needed, excep it would be a good skill to have for future projects.

This was a mean project for me.  It took four trys just to get the 3d look.  I dont even have the water drops that would take this to the next level.  I need some thoughts here, ya'all!
Conceive it!  Believe it!  Achieve it!

Thebryce, what you have done is very nice as far as techniques go :clap: :clap: :clap: What bothers me is that you have gone much too dark in the sunshine areas.

Taker a look at the original and see if you can lift out to match the lighter areas. That will make a tremendous improvement. Keep it up as I see improvement over some of your previous work. O0

I agree with Dennis about the light; however, as he said, you have made a tremendous improvement.  You are just moving right along!  Great job! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Gorgeous background Bryce! It's a lovely painting even without the highlight areas.

The detail in your painting is mind boggling Bryce!!  You are painting as you draw. This was a good result.

You've really made some inroads with this one Bryce. Just those few tweaks to brighten it up a bit and it will be outstanding.  O0   :clap:   :clap:
