Hi Sem...........first let me apologise for taking the liberty of changing your painting...........I find it hard to critique but easier to show what I want to say..........I used the soft knife to smooth and left some as you had it.........I think a cup should be smooth........but I'm no expert........please don't be offended.........;)I did it too quickly really :mad:but with more time it could be much better.

Great perspective Steve. This is something that is so hard for me.

Steve, I think it looks very good. Certainly far better than I could do.:)

Sem, great shape and colours to your cup and saucer but smoother is better :)

The shape of cup is realistic, just the coffee looks not so "liquid" but I can't tell you how to do it.:)

I love this painting :cool::):):):):) ... also because that's what we call a cup of coffee and most foreign people an expresso and reserve the name in Your title to a mug of coffee tinted hot water!:D
