    The flower vase has some nice stuff happening. The vase is frosty, which may be the kind of glass. So it's hard to comment on. Ordinarily, when you have so much black in the painting and so saturated with the color of the flowers, you would want to go a little richer throughout. But I don't know the reference you're using. I can only go by how it appears, and I personally would include some of that contrast in the vase.

    If it's normal transparent glass, then that's a whole other thing in which case you would want to have more darks in it or perhaps pick up some of the color of the flowers reflected in it to add interest and make it feel more like it's part of the same environment. Sometimes one has to push things further than normal to achieve this cohesiveness. But that's just a guess based on generic painting principles.

    It's a sweet piece and some stuff in it is very pleasant. Keep painting. Even though I had criticism, it belies the fact that you're learning so much and extending your skills.
