The strong colours, simplified background and hard edges on the still life items give this a very contemporary look. That may have been the intention. If so, well done, the painting works.In traditional realist still lifes we would see more accurate drawing of the items and some attention to the background to create depth. Either approach is fine. It depends on the look your after, the style you want to develop.
A good way to view your painting for mistakes is to look at it in a mirror of upside down.
Great job. the colors may be a bit oversaturated as Denis said but that helps taking a traditional still-life into the realm of contemporary art. Drawing a centerline with a square helps keep cylindrical objects straight and symmetrical which also helps with drawing ellipses although these are all done quite well.
michal3michalA pleasant still life. Great learning opportunity to study light, values, perspective etc under controlled conditions.Excellent realism and good textural surface rendering. All the objects have good dimension and depth and all in keeping with a kitchen table scene.Surface of table and background colour choice is unusual, saturated and a bit of a distraction from the stars of the show.Composition is pretty random and could be grouped or clustered to add some balance and movement.Edges are uniformly sharp, lending a cut out appearance to the objects. Round objects appear more solid with a softer edge. Soft to the rear, sharper to the front creates space in the painting. The sharpest edges should be reserved for the focal point, Pepper mill is a bit bent in the middle. Might be a lens distortion.Denis
For only the third painting you’ve done quite well.in terms of the drawing the symmetry of the pepper grinder is off. The angle of the sides of the white cup is off.But those things improve over time.The colors are too high keyed. And having all the edges hard gives the objects a flat appearance. The same is true for the cast shadows. But in spite of all that you did achieve a sense of space. I think with some of these minor improvements you will see a big improvement in the realism of your painting.
It's a lovely still life @michal3michal. I love the reflections on the pepper mill. i'm sure you've learnt a lot from this one, looking forward to see your next painting.
