I see you are  doing very well on the course. The fuschias are well executed.

I like the mountains that are beautifully lit up by the late afternoon sun.

It's hard to believe that you can produce such quality after such a short period and that from a still life that you set up yourself. Extremely well done. Congrats :clap:

Hi Annamaria, you are doing extremely well :clap:

I am not sure if it's just in the photo, if not, you can still increase the contrasts in your still life a bit more. You can see how I have done that below. I have basically darkened your darks up a bit more. My suggestion would be to use the next pencil down from what you have used, eg. if you had used your B pencil for the shadows, then move to your 2B.

Keep up the great work O0
