    It's looking good so far. Are you going to finish the rest of the flowers or leave them in silhouette???

    I like how you rendered the petals for the most part. My primary concern is the lack of time spent on the leaves (when compared to the petals of course). Given the type of image, typically blurred edges won't be in order, unless executed perfectly. Here you have blurred in a manner that a camera lens would, which is contrary to the painterly approach that one would expect (crisp edges in light, blurred edges in shadow, etc.)

    The stigma and stamen of the flower appear to be painted onto the petals. Try to work more on their individual highlights and shadows, as well as cast shadows onto the petals. In fact, try to take better care of the cast shadows from one petal onto the next. Additionally, the piece could also use more texture overall.

    Like what you've done. Keep it up and best of luck

    great advice from Havic. To add to what was said its important to carfully observe the edges of petals and other parts. you want to be able to do two things with edges, put them in how you see them and put them in how you see them in relation to your focus. (really just one thing) if you examine each edge arbitraly, they may appear sharp. but having a fixed focus and obseriving with your peripheral vision the sorroundling edges, it will help to make proper relationships. how do you find your focus? if you glance for a second at the still life your eye is attracted to a particular place every time. (with a fresh eye) that generally is where the natural focus is. understanding how and where your eye stops on the still life with help to transfer that same information to the panting. it is not easyto just grasp at first, but with practice you'll start to notice it get easier. to note there amy be more then one stop for your eyes.
