rookie painter challenge


(7x10)
The current (until 1/16) challenge at Rookie Painter. There are a number of really beautiful interpretations of the reference photo on the blog. I'm not entirely happy with my color choices.
In reply to Renate's comment:
I think it's because, in the reference photo (not that it matters exactly; you could make the bowls any color) the two darker bowls are a more neutral color: but beautiful neutrals with color in them ... so that, when I look at them, I can't decide what color they are.
Maybe it's more the values than the color? I need to darken some parts of all the colored bowls.
I admired in some of the other interpretations how the bowls looked ceramic. I have to work on that.

I like these colors together - very much complements working together and your lovely style :) I was amazed at how many of these have shown up on blogs - and all are beautifully done! Each so different but of the same still life set-up.

Great to see your interpretation! I see nothing wrong with the colors, I like the red and green you used in the bowls. Strawberries look yummie!

Hello Laura. I think the colors are beautiful. I like the light blue/purple in the background and shadow and the colors of the pots are just great. The yellow/green is very nice! The strawberry are ready to eat! What is it you don't like?

My only comment is, "you don't seem like a 'rookie painter' to me." Well done!
