 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Sharon an excellent painting of the fruit.  Like you, I had a problem with my background and feel that I need much more practice for that seems to be a huge problem area for me for whatever reason.  I can never get my backgrounds looking smooth and without it having stripes, cauliflowers, uneven shading and blobs. Nevertheless, your painting generally looks fantastic.  Good for you.  Patricia

Sharon....a great picture. Even the background looks okay. There always is shadows and reflections on the walls, and the table looks neat cuz it looks like the "cloth is kinda pushed" from the plate.  Good job. Looks terrific.
Yeah...I'm a background yuckie, too, Pat. If I keep a 'bead', I have a cauliflower!!  Ha ha. Sooner.......(or later).....I'll get the hang of it!

Thanks Mea, Patricia and Retta - and glad to know I'm not the only background challenged painter in the group! Luckily the picture looks great from a distance in a frame when no one can see the blemishes...
Cheers,
Sharon

Well done, Sacgal!   I see no problem with the background.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 O0 O0 O0 Sharon, I think that you did a great job. I really didn't think that your background was bad. Wish you could have seen mine before I poured all the water over it in an attempt to get it smooth looking and still didn't succeed!!!  I am really "background challenged"   So good for you.   :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:  Patricia

Patricia - that's funny about pouring water over your painting :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: - I've been tempted to do the same in the past!

I had to redo this just so I could get the background less blotchy! So here's my Still Life with Fruit #2!
Cheers,

Sacgal,

Nice fruit still life.  Maybe in taking out the blotches in the background, you washed it out too much.  Or maybe that's just how it looks from the photograph.

Fruit looks good, though.

Nice job.

Have been working hard to catch up with the long overdue unfinished PDFs of previous lessons. Just finished :sweat:
Tomorrow I will comment on all the lovely still life paintings - I am really impressed :flowers:

Mea - in person the background is actually much darker - I think the photography at night with the reflection of the glass frame makes it appear lighter.  Guess I need to take a photography class next! Thanks, Didwaud!
Cheers,
Sharon
