I am a graphic artist from Rome, Italy; even if I work mainly on graphic design and photography, my true love is still painting; unfortunatley I am self taught in this field and since I stopped practicing since too much time, now I discover myself losing even the yet poor skills I had.
"never give up" says the motto so I'm starting back from the basics, with very simple exercises: I'd love to have any kind of critique and advice to both improve and motivate myself and keep on practicing:
here are my first ones, done from photo reference:

the second didn't turn out as good as the first, the can floats on bkg and the overall shape has some problems:
any comment and suggestion will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance
