I keep commenting on your paintings like I'm an expert, and I am definitely not.. just trying to learn.  So please don't take offense.
It this painting and seems like another one too, I am not sure the shadow colors are all correct.  From the melon onto the table cloth, it seems a little to purple rather than just darker.  It is more purple than from the eggplants which actually are purple and could use a little more depth in the shadow from them. I like most of your highlights on the fruit and veggies.  I'm not sure of the folds in the fabric. The one on the far right is good. The rest of it seems more like stripes, but I don't know exactly how I would fix it..  Hope for more comments on all the points I've commented on.  I think this really helps me whether I am right or wrong.  Your work really is nice though.

 First of all Subhadra,  :welcome: to the Paint Basket! We love it when other artist join our community!
I really like your painting! Your colors are beautiful! I think maybe what Polliwag is seeing is the need for a little more blending. Overall, I really like it.  How long have you been painting? Hope to see more of your work!

I really like your painting, subhadra.  I'm guessing it's oil  :confused:

Anyway, you are doing very well.  I love the colors.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

If you want to paint in an even more realistic style,  Nolan has a great series of videos that will help you.
