Nice and still and set up. Dramatic lighting. Interesting how you are sort of blending styles that are very different in sensibilities. Fool the eye palette and lighting with juicy painterly strokes. Will be interesting to watch this technique develop, which direction will come to dominate. All very personal and that's the exciting part.

I quite like the flowers especially. High marks on the freehand approach too.

Are those seeds or beans to the left on the table?

Heh heh, Mr D Akey you may, or may not, be surprised to know I have no idea what I'm doing here, no plan, it just sort of evolved. The beans are stray grapes from the bunch in the shadows, good dark shadows eh?. ;)

Very nice, it kind of has an old look to it, makes me think back to grandma's parlour as a child.
