It's a great start.  :clap: :clap: :clap: I have only one suggestion, if you darken your shadows especially the shadows on the right on the table, you will make the fruit pop out.

The darkest part of the shadow will be right up against the fruit and fade out as you move away. Well done.  O0

That is correct!  :) I can see that you have done more of this in your second drawing! Good job - keep going! If you ever have the opportunity, you would probably enjoy the Let's Draw program and you would learn TONS of drawing tips!

I especially like your floral bouquet, Maria.   :clap: :clap: :clap:


 and the fabric you laid your drawing on really sets it off nicely!

Maria...you are coming right along. Like Val says, the more you draw, the better you will get. You will see the tones and shading so much more.
 :gl:   and keep up the good work.
